In step 4, agreement section, of your registration, request that you agree to have your name added to the National Board registry. This is a candidate tracking service that is ONLY used by the National Board.
While this is officially optional, refusing to do so eliminates candidates from the possibility of receiving scholarships and/or candidate support. This is the document that Mississippi Department of Education accesses in order to validate Mississippi candidates.
If you did not choose the option to release to 3rd party, here are the steps to do so.
How to Release Your Name to Third Parties
1. Log in to your National Board profile
2. Select Service Requests on the left-hand navigation menu.
3. Select “Update” for Update your Agreement Information under Registration Related options.
4. Under the Special Considerations heading, select “Yes” to “Do you wish to have your name released to third-party agencies that may provide incentives, support, and rewards for teachers seeking National Board Certification? Refer to the Confidentiality Guidelines in the Guide to National Board Certification for additional information and/or opportunities for National Board Certified Teachers.”
This must be done every year that you choose to participate with the World Class Teaching Program. Thank you!!!
