The primary purpose of the Master of Education in Special Education is
to provide individuals who already possess, or are eligible for, a
current Alaska teaching certificate with specific training in the
areas of special education. Special education candidates will
progress through a series of developmentally sequenced field
experiences for the full range of ages, types and levels of
abilities and collaborative opportunities. All students in the program
will demonstrate knowledge of the Council for Exceptional Children
(CEC) content standards for Special Education Teachers.
Special permission is required to register for classes until program admission is complete . Courses are offered on campus in Fairbanks and by distance delivery via audio conference. Contact School of Education for details: firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-474-5362.
The Federal Government has a GRANT for you. Up to $4,000 per year that doesn't have to be paid back if you teach in the field for four years in a high need area. See this two page flier for more details.
Certified teachers in the state of Alaska may qualify for the Special
Education Alternate Program Certificate. If a school district is
unable to recruit and hire a certified special education teacher
they may hire a person with an alternate program certificate. To
earn the certificate, the person must complete 9 credit hours in
special education and be enrolled in a full certification program.
