Success for All

Success for All has various components for all ranges of students and staff seen here.


The Bering Strait School District has full time counselors in Savoonga and Gambell. In addition, we have two itinerant counselors who are based out of NACTEC in Nome. Tom App serves the villages of Elim, Shaktoolik, and Golovin, and Heidi Graber serves Teller and Brevig Mission.

Bilingual/Bicultural Program

The majority of our villages have hired paraprofessionals to teach the native culture and/or language, as part of the Bilingual/Bicultural program. Some villages have been fortunate enough to fill the positions with LRE's, or Locally Recognized Experts.

Indian Education Program

Our Indian Education Program is funded by a federal grant. The grant funds the employment of aides in each of the schools, who work specifically with students in grades 1-8 to improve their skills in reading and math.

Career and Technical Education

Our district employs Career and Technical Education teachers at seven of our sites. The CTE programs are largely funded by a federal Perkins grant. Our students follow Programs of Study, which will lead them to technical certificates and an opportunity to earn dual High School/College credit.
