Alaska Educators and the Coronavirus Outbreak 2020-03-31T16:26:17-08:00

The unprecedented COVID-19 coronavirus has caused widespread disruptions to schools in Alaska and across the country. NEA-Alaska continues to monitor the situation closely and we are actively working with the Department of Education and Early Development, school districts, and local associations to keep you up to date. The most current information we have is that all schools across Alaska are closed until at least May 1. Please use and share this webpage as a resource during these challenging times. As always, please feel free to contact us if you have questions, concerns, or issues.
