The Renewal Application Window is now open. For teachers who certified in either in 2008 or 2009, now is the time to consider renewing your National Board Certification. If you certified in 2008, this is your last opportunity to renew your certification. If you certified in 2009 and choose to wait until next year (2018-19) to renew, you risk a lapse in your supplement as you wait for your National Board renewal results.
Candidates who made their initial application to NBPTS prior to July 1, 2010 have the right to renew and continue to receive the supplement at the $7500 level for one additional ten-year period as long as they stay in a supplement eligible position. The legislation allows for these teachers to receive the supplement for a maximum of twenty years (two ten-year cycles).
