One of the reasons I enjoy working at IASD is the teamwork that the staff generates. Because there are so few to do so much we have a team spirit that includes, among many other things, support for each other. In a team this size, every person makes a big contribution.
The Iditarod Area School District recognizes the unique and distinctive nature of each student with regard to character, capacity, ability, and heritage. In doing so, we are committed to providing individualized, comprehensive, and sequential programs to all students in an atmosphere that reflects their cultural heritage; and will, through an organized, efficient, and effective school program designed and dedicated to incorporating a variety of learning opportunities, assure them of successful achievements as adults in the 21st Century.

I love working for IASD because of the camaraderie between staff members. The support and willingness to work together as a team brings accountability and makes me a better educator.
Joyanne Hamilton - Principal/Teacher
For 42-years I have called Shageluk on the Innoko River my home; 30 of those years have been spent as a member of the Innoko River School staff. I share our community's goals of providing a quality education for our students while honoring the cultural education of my students as Deg Hitan tribal members.
