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.

National Board Field Tests

Be a pioneer for the teaching profession

There’s a reason teachers who go through the process of becoming Board certified call it “transformative.” Not only are there tangible career benefits, but teachers learn to become even more effective in the classroom. The National Board is updating the certification process to work even better for educators.

The National Board is recruiting teachers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students seeking a teaching license, to participate in field tests of the new efficient and affordable National Board certification process. This is a great opportunity to help shape the future of the teaching profession and experience a sample of the process that thousands of teachers have called transformative.

National Board Certification is the profession’s highest mark of accomplished teaching – performance-based and peer-reviewed. The revisions will make the certification process more flexible, affordable and efficient so that many more teachers and students can benefit. National Board Certified Teachers as well as teachers who have not yet achieved certification are invited to apply for the field tests.

As a token of thanks for their time, participants will also be eligible to receive up to two Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and/or up to $50 in gift cards for either Amazon.com or Powell's Books. All participants will also receive a letter of commendation from the National Board.

For those not currently Board certified, participating in a field test will provide an inside look into the process at no cost. 

Board-certified teachers can participate in one or more field tests to gain first-hand experience with the revisions. Participation in a field test also provides a professional learning opportunity which could be used to document how teachers are members of learning communities. Help us make certification a process that works for you.
