Does AACPS support the candidates?
Because AACPS truly believes in the power of the National Board Certification program to impact student learning as well as grow teacher capacity, AACPS supports teachers pursuing NBC by funding the tuition, providing support meetings, and NBC Facilitators, and providing a NBCT stipend for those that achieve this highest teaching credential in the nation!
AACPS has a robust support program. Teachers meet monthly with a NBC Facilitator in small groups to receive and give feedback on their writing, student work samples, and videos. Candidates are member of a NBC Blackboard community and have access to discussions and support through the internet.
