Do you want to pursue a special education certificate?

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.

Special Education Alternate Program Certificate

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. See here for details.
