Encourage your teachers to join DOE’s National Board Certification cohort

Now is a great time for teachers to consider National Board Certification. The Department of Education will be facilitating a cohort for teachers who sign up to begin the process in January 2018. The goal of the cohort is to provide support and guidance as teachers move through the National Board Certification process.

Find information on joining the cohort on the Department of Education’s National Board Certification webpage. The registration deadline is Jan. 5, 2018.

South Dakota NBC educators receive $2,000 per year for five years, with $1,000 paid by the Department of Education and $1,000 paid by the educator’s school district, and they can apply to have their National Board Certification fees reimbursed.

It is optional for districts to reimburse nationally-certified school counselors.
