Did you know that there are changes to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification process?
The cost and amount of portfolio work has been reduced while the time allotted to complete the certification has increased.
The state of North Carolina currently pays an additional 12 percent of your base salary once certification is completed. Study groups are now available for registration in the Professional Learning section of My Talent. We hope all initial and renewal candidates will join us on Saturday, October 11, 2014 for our Candidate Kickoff.
If you want to participate in this year's certification process, find more information at http://pdsupport.cmswiki.wikispaces.net/National+Board+Information
