Will I be provided a candidate support provider?
No, our course is an independent course that teaches candidates how self-assess using provided feedback forms.

Who is the course designed for?
This course is designed for a variety of different candidates such as:

  • Rural candidates who have no local candidate support
  • Any candidate that has no local candidate support
  • As a valuable supplemental resource for candidates that do have candidate support

*Mississippi candidates should enroll with the University of Mississippi’s World Class Teaching Program to access a similar course.

Additional Information

  • Cost – $135.00 annual, nonrefundable fee.
  • Enrollment is for one cycle year and will end the following August 1. Continuing candidates must reapply each year just as they do with the National Board. * Exception: If a candidate joins in May, June, or July they will remain in the course until the following August.
  • If a candidate does join in late spring, after March 1, their enrollment will last through the upcoming school year. Meaning they would have course access until August 1 the following year.

Payment, $135 is due upon completion of the application.
