The state is responsible for approving the certification of teachers, and with an influx of Outside teachers during the summer, the certification office gets backed up and cannot complete all applications before classes start.
The certification office is still making a first review of applications submitted three weeks ago and a second and final review of applications received five weeks back, according to the state website.
But approval of the contracts Wednesday means no other teachers in the district are waiting for credentials to come through for filled teaching positions, KIBSD executive secretary Karen DeGuzman said.
Contracts were approved for Corrine Cratty at Main Elementary, Jeremy Voorhees and Nicole Voorhees for the Akhiok School, and Stacey Waldrup at Kodiak High School.
