KEA’s National Board Jump Start is a 2 ½ -day seminar that provides early support to National Board candidates to help you understand and be successful in the certification process ahead. Jump Start is intended to compliment yearlong candidate support provided by university, co-op and district programs and is led by a fun and dynamic team of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs).
Training will begin at 8:00 am each day. Training will conclude at 4:30 on Thursday and Friday and at 12:30 on Saturday.
The cost for KEA members is $200.00 and $500.00 for non-members. Your registration fee includes lunch, all-day beverage service and snacks each day, plus training materials and costs. Candidates are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and substitute costs if applicable. Part of your fee also provides an honorarium to each of the many NBCTs and trainers who contribute their time to make this event a quality experience for candidates.
Jump Start participants should be registered candidates with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) before the start of the Seminar they attend. Because this is a KEA-sponsored event, priority access will be given to KEA members who are officially registered with NBPTS. Contact NBPTS (www.nbpts.org) to pay your initial $75 fee and obtain a National Board ID number.
Capacity is limited to 30 candidates per session. If you receive a message that the session is full, and you wish to be placed on the Jump Start waitlist, please email firstname.lastname@example.org that you would like to be placed on the waitlist and/or notified of other Jump Start sessions.
Once you have completed the registration and payment process, you will receive a confirmation e- mail. Please print and save this as a receipt.
Thank you for choosing KEA Jump Start to begin your National Board certification process!
