Is there a fee or applicaion for the Support Group?

  • Participation in our cohort costs $400 each year, but there is no application. We welcome all certificate areas, and candidates at any stage of the process. 

This cost gains you access to all virtual meetings, facilitated by National Board Certfied Teachers from a range of certificate areas. This fee also includes access to a Canvas course, which houses all resources from synchronous sessions as well as asynchronous materials guiding you through the certification process. Please register and pay by October 15, 2021.
