Alaska Teacher Certification
In Alaska, responsibility for the certification of teachers and other school professionals is assigned to the Teacher Education and Certification office within the Department of Education & Early Development (DEED).
Check your certification status
Your teaching certificate is only valid for 5 years and it is imperative that you do not let this expire. The State of Alaska WILL NOT notify you when your certificate is up for renewal. However, you can search online and learn exactly when your certificate expires. The earliest you may submit an application packet for renewal is one year prior to the expiration date on the certificate you are renewing.
If you currently hold or have held an Alaska certificate, you may check the status of recent document submissions, application or view your certificate record.
