National Board Candidate Support Workshop 2020-21 Kick Off So. Portland

September 19 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Connect with other Maine candidates as you engage in the National Board process, learn the difference between Teaching Standards and Content

These workshops are designed to give you the information and encouragement that you need to complete the National Board Certification process. Find out what is involved, the time commitments required and how to get assistance with fees. The State of Maine will cover the cost of scholarships for National Board fees for candidates. Tips for establishing time lines, organizing the work, and accessing resources for candidate support will also be shared.

Each workshop will have a different focus based on the needs of the candidates attending. You are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible to get the full benefit of working with this group of dedicated Maine teachers! Participants will also receive contact hours for each workshop attended. Those who achieve certification are eligible for a $3,000 salary supplement provided by the state. Those who teach in a high needs school (50% or more free and reduced rate lunch) will receive an additional $2,000 beginning in the 2020-21 school year.
