To our cost-sharing districts!
We have been fortunate to have a number of districts that have offered to help pay for mentoring services.

Thank you, for helping our program succeed:

  Iditarod            Lake & Peninsula
  Alaska Gateway     Yakutat
  LKSD     Dillingham
  Annette Island     Southwest Region
  Northwest Arctic     North Slope
  Bering Strait     Nome
  Kake     Hoonah


Every student in Alaska has the benefit of a great teacher.
Great teachers help our children to learn, grow, and thrive. They make learning exciting and tap into the knowledge, skills, and resources of local communities to help students achieve both personal and academic success.


Give new teachers the support they need to succeed.
The Alaska Statewide Mentor Project exists to lift up and support the profession of teaching in Alaska. The project provides individualized support to first- and second-year teachers, developing an effective teaching force that is responsive to the diverse academic needs and cultural backgrounds of all students.



An Open Letter to Our School Districts, Administrators and Teachers

March 24, 2020

A message from the Program Manager:

It is a privilege for our mentors and staff to support Alaska's school district’s first- and second-year teachers  (aka Early Career Teachers, or ECTs).  We are fully prepared to continue this support via distance delivery through the end of the 19-20 school year.

ASMP has been honing its distance delivery skills since its inception in 2003. We are equipped to continue providing instructional and social-emotional reinforcement with our weekly early career teacher (ECT) check-ins and various modes of delivery.

Thank you for all you are doing for your students and your community during these uncertain times. Please reach out if we can help in any further way.  We have resources to support staff and individuals.  If we can partner with you in any way, please contact us.
