This wiki will be updated this summer with additional information for 2018-2019 candidates.

Summer Support Sessions
Support sessions will be offered this summer for initial and retake candidates. Register on MyTalent for the session(s) of your choice. There are NO STIPENDS or CEUs for attendance at these summer sessions. Each session is offered twice this summer. The initial and repeat sessions contain identical content, so you do not need to register for more than one offering of each support session.

National Board Study Group Information

Information about 2018-2019 study groups will be available by August, 2018.

We encourage CMS National Board candidates to join study groups. Study groups meet on selected Saturdays at Spaugh Professional Development Center, 1901 Herbert Spaugh Lane, Charlotte, NC, 28208. Initial candidates who plan to attempt all four components during this school year should register for one of the year-long study groups for either elementary or secondary (middle and high school) candidates. Candidates attempting fewer than four components during 2017-2018 should register for a two-month study group for each component that they plan to attempt during this school year. Skill groups and consultation opportunities are also available each month for all candidates. Study groups and consultation sessions will be held from 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon on selected Saturdays.

In order to gain the most benefit from the study group meetings, you should download and review the National Board standards, general portfolio instructions, component instructions and scoring rubrics, and all related forms for your certification area prior to your study group meetings. You are encouraged to bring a device to the study group meetings so that you may access these documents as you work in your study groups.

Renewal candidates will register for the renewal study group. Use the Renewals tab at the left to access more information for renewal candidates.
