ACPS continues to provide full support to our NBCT Cohorts. This year we are providing our Information Sessions earlier in the year so applicants have more time to prepare work within their standards. The Mission of NBCT is to advance student learning and achievement.
This process is for identifying accomplished teachers. Applicants will work on four components: (1) exam and (3) portfolio submissions. ACPS supports a two-year time frame to do this and the cost of $2050 which ACPS funds a majority for selected candidates in our cohort.
General information about the NBPTS and the NB certification program is available from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Website
