State of National Board in South Carolina
The SC legislature passed provisos 1A.32 and 1A.49. The following is provided for information concerning supplements.
The salary supplement continues at the $7500 level for anyone who has been certified and who completed the National Board application process (as an initial candidate) prior to July 1, 2010.
If an NBCT enters into a renewal cycle (in their 8th or 9th year of certification), he/she will receive a 2nd ten year salary supplement (at the $7500 level), if the NB process was initially started prior to July 1, 2010. The July 1, 2010 deadline refers to his/her initial application to NB.
If an NBCT waits until their 9th year of certification to begin the renewal process, he/she could see a lapse in their NB supplement. NBCTs are encouraged to begin the renewal process in his/her 8th year of certification.
If a person applies after July 1, 2010, and is certified by the National Board, he/she will receive a $5000 salary supplement in the year of achieving certification, not to exceed 10 years of the national certificate.
