NBCT Renewal Study Group
Nurturing Teacher Leadership (NTL)
CPS/CTU National Board Certificate Renewal Study Group
All CPS NBCTs are supported in the renewal process by the Chicago Public Schools/Chicago Teachers Union NBCT Renewal Study Group through Nurturing Teacher Leadership (NTL). This year, we will support NBCTs who achieved in 2010 and 2011. We encourage 2011 NBCTs to renew this year because it is the last year Renewal will result in a 10-year NBPTS certificate – beginning next year, NBCTs will renew for a 5-year period.
The CPS-funded Renewal study group meets monthly at the Chicago Teachers Union Center at 1901 W. Carroll Street. Come and learn about Renewal and work with a Renewal mentor who will guide you through the process! All mentors are NBCTs who have renewed their National Board certificates. There is no cost for this support.
ISBE subsidizes the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards fees for Renewal ($1250).
ISBE PD hours are available to NBCTs who attend all of the study group sessions.
