    Earn Salary Advancement Through National Board Certification

    National Board Certification is a pathway for professional growth and salary advancement in Texas.  By successfully completing National Board Certification, teachers automatically receive a "Recognized" designation and can earn $3,000 - $9,000 (up to 90% of which must go toward teacher salary) in additional state funding from their school, per year, per teacher.  In addition, certification fees are reimbursed by the state as part of the Texas Teacher Incentive Allotment.                                                                                                                                   

    The Region One ESC Educator Preparation Program has partnered with a state organization to offer a National Board Certification Pre-Candidacy Support Program.  This support program will serve to enable educators to prove proficiency in specific practice areas that will prepare them for successful completion of the National Board Certification process.  Teachers ready to experience high quality, transformational professional training that will positively impact student achievement and lead to incentivized performance are encouraged to attend a free information session by submitting an interest form.
