1/30/2021 Important update from NBPTS

Uncategorized Jan 30, 2021

Direct Message from the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards: 

We have made adjustments to provide more time for candidates to finalize decisions and submit their National Board work; additional supports developed to address COVID pandemic-related impacts and an option to defer to next school year if needed.



Certificate Extension




Updated Guides

The following documents have been updated to reflect the information above and will be available on the National Board website on 2/1/21:

  • Guide to National Board Certification
  • Guide to Maintenance of Certification
  • Renewal Guide
  • Third-Party Payer Guide


We imagine that candidates may have some questions that are not answered in these resources. In the coming week, we will add additional clarification on our COVID-19 page. If you receive questions that you can’t answer, please direct candidates to reach out to the Customer Support Team at 1-800-22TEACH (83224) or via the National Board web form.
