JUNEAU, Alaska - The state education department is changing its web address. It will now be http://education.alaska.gov.
The department says its older web addresses, which describe the agency as "eed," do not make clear the department's function.
"EED" refers to the agency's full name, the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development.
The agency says the old addresses will stay in place until January 2013. Sometime after that, anyone using them will be redirected.
