The Lower Kuskokwim School District Special Education Department presents a unique experience for adventurous individuals working in remote Native Alaskan villages.   The Lower Kuskokwim School District has the largest school population in Bush Alaska. The twenty-two village sites are spread over a large geographic area and are accessible only by small aircraft, boat, and/or snow machine.
