Welcome to the Yukon-Koyukuk School District. You are beginning a grand adventure in Interior Alaska.
We hope you enjoy your upcoming school year. Individual questions about each site may be addressed at the new teacher in-service, which is held in Fairbanks at the district office prior to the beginning of school.
Enaa neenyo. 'I'm glad you came.' Welcome to the Yukon-Koyukuk School District. We're excited to have you join our teaching staff.
The Yukon-Koyukuk School District (YKSD) is within the Yukon-Koyukuk Census area, an area that is contained in the Yukon and Koyukuk River Valleys. Overall, the District encompasses nearly 65,000 square miles.
The total population in the area is just over 6,000 people. The YKSD serves nine villages. The estimated enrollment for 2005-2006 is 368 students in K-12. The district also sponsors statewide correspondence programs called Raven Correspondence School and Alyeska Central School. The total number of students served district wide is 1,943.
The school is a major gathering place in each community. As a teacher, you will be encouraged to participate in community events. The community involvement in each school varies by site and depending upon the event. All of the classes are multi-age. The larger schools may have two grades in one class, and the smaller sites may have four grades in one class. In addition to multi-age, the skill level in each grade may vary from far below grade level to far above grade level.
Each site has two-way video-conferencing capabilities. Biology, art, and Native language courses will be offered each semester. These courses are taught primarily by the distance delivery instructor, but require some on-site teaching assistance.
