Alaska State Personnel Development Grant
The goal of this project is to address the key problem of an inadequate supply of qualified, trained education personnel to meet the needs of Alaska's special education population, a high proportion of which are children from low-income, limited-English-proficient, or minority backgrounds. Specific goals of this project include: (a) meeting the special education recruitment needs of Alaska local educational agencies; (b)
improving the Alaska State system of special education personnel preparation through mentoring, coaching, and professional development; and (c) sustaining the Alaska State special education system of support for personnel preparation and retention.
GAINS for Alaska includes activities specifically targeted to recruit, train, and retain special education teachers, special education directors, administrators, and early childhood providers.
