(a) The exchange of teachers is for a period of one year only. The school board of the school district making the exchange is authorized to grant the exchange in accordance with this section and may give teachers leaves of absence for not more than one year.
(b) Teachers in district schools desiring exchange positions with teachers of school systems in the states or territories shall first secure the written consent of their respective school boards. The consent shall state that a leave of absence is granted for one year, specify the year, and state that the teacher may return to her position the following year. These letters shall be forwarded to the commissioner for recordation.
(c) All teachers must have taught successfully for a period of five years in the state, the last three years of which must be in the position they are holding at the time of their application for exchange.
(d) The district school boards have authority to accept in exchange teachers qualified in the other states or territories for the period of one year, and the exchange teachers are not required to secure a state certificate for the year of exchange. If the teachers coming into the state stay longer than one year, they are required to secure certificates in accordance with the regulations of the department.
(e) In selecting teachers for exchange, special attention shall be paid to the "general fitness" of teachers under consideration. No applicant for the privilege of securing an exchange position shall be recommended unless it is felt that the teacher will make a satisfactory contribution and will represent with credit the public schools of Alaska.
(f) This section also applies to exchange teaching positions for foreign countries. Exchange teachers from foreign countries are not required to meet the citizenship requirement for teaching in the state and will not have to take the oath of office, provided they have been cleared for entrance into this country. They shall, however, be required to file a medical certificate.
(g) Exchange teaching in another state or in a territory or in a foreign country will be acceptable as Alaska experience for not to exceed a one year's experience credit, provided that the experience is in a public school and provided that the teacher has gone directly from an Alaska position to the exchange position.
