Since 1999 the Arkansas Department of Education has made it possible for many Arkansas teachers to become National Board certified. Upon receiving certification many educators ask, "What do I do now?"
The answer to this question is an organization dedicated to National Board Certified teachers, candidates, facilitators and other education professionals interested in advancing accomplished teaching in our state.
I am pleased to announce that the Arkansas Department of Education’s NBPTS support budget has been approved for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. State bonuses ($5,000) will be paid to eligible NBCTs, and state funding for NBPTS candidacy will be available.
