Learn about life in Alaska

Most American educators drive to work or maybe take a bus to their schools. But, here in Alaska, things are different. SERRC staff travel the state by air (jet, float, and prop planes), boat, snow machine, and – if need be – by dog sled to provide the children of Alaska with the best possible programs and services.

Culture

Alaska is home to many different ethnic groups, including Alaska Natives. With more than eleven distinct cultures and 20 different languages, there is no one Alaska Native Culture. Alaska Natives make up about 15% of the state’s total population. Along with Alaska’s first people, America’s far north is also comprised of other ethnic groups – all of which have their own language and culture. In Alaska, almost each community hosts a unique combination of not only ethnic groups – but cultures and sub-cultures. From fishermen (and women) and loggers, to people who work in tourism and the oil industry, to large groups that live a subsistence lifestyle – Alaska is truly a world unto itself.

Working as a special education itinerant

SERRC’s Itinerant Special Education Related Service providers deliver services to school districts located in rural and rural-remote Alaska. While Alaska’s three major cities may be indecipherable from small urban clusters in other states, “bush” Alaska is unlike any town or village in the lower 48. In fact, many residents live a subsistence or semi-subsistence lifestyle. Due to the lack of roads, travel in and out of “bush” Alaska is limited to air travel in small planes. All SERRC itinerants are expected to perform evaluations for special education eligibility as well as assisting with the implementation of services.
