Limited scholarships available for National Board
Educators interested in pursuing National Board Certification (NBC) may apply for one-time scholarships. Due to the availability of federal funds, the South Dakota Department of Education is offering 25 $2,000 scholarships for teachers to pursue full National Board Certification.
The scholarships are for the 2012-13 NBC candidate cycle only. The deadline to apply is Sept. 15.
The National Board Certification process requires that teachers provide evidence of analysis and reflection on their teaching practice as it impacts students, as well as their record of working within the whole school community, collaborating with colleagues and stakeholders to impact student achievement, and strengthening family/community partnerships.
