The Lower Kuskokwim School District is an exciting and rewarding place to learn and teach in "bush' Alaska. The LKSD is the largest rural school district in Alaska with 27 schools, 350 teachers and about 4,100 Yup'ik students. The landmass of the district is about the size of West Virginia spreading along the Kuskokwim River and Bering coast of southwest Alaska. Travel is by jet from Anchorage and then by small plane, snowmobile or boat from Bethel to the village sites.
The LKSD supports instructional staff with a robust professional development program differentiated from whole group to individually selected courses. There is a teacher mentor program that includes orientation to the local culture and learning about our curriculum. Additional mentoring for new to LKSD teachers is provided through the individualized BetterLessons model.
