Becoming a renewal candidate is a testament to your continued dedication to the highest standards of the teaching profession.

Is It Time to Renew?


Topics to be Discussed

  • Renewal Basics

  • Assessment Components

  • Scoring

  • Organizing

  • NBPTS Resources


Thinking about Renewal

  • NBCTs begin renewal in their 8th or 9th year of their original certificate cycle

  • NBCTs must renew BEFORE their original certificate expires

  • NBCTs must begin renewal prior to the expiration date


What’s Different?

Profile of Professional Growth

  • The product is scored holistically.

  • Components are not scored separately.

  • Score reported as “Renewed” or “Not Renewed”.

National Board Certification Portfolio

  • Separate entries that receive separate scores.

  • Opportunity to bank scores and retake entries to meet minimum score requirement for certification.


What is a PGE?

Let’s see what you already know about

PGEs

Professional Growth Experiences


A PGE is a one-time workshop.


A PGE must evolve.


A PGE can begin before NBPTS certification.


PGE may be reported with unlimited documentation.


PGE must show indirect or direct impact on student learning.


A PGE demonstrates your on-going commitment or contribution to the profession.


PGEs should be multi-faceted.


You cannot write about a PGE if you are no longer in the classroom.


PGEs must demonstrate continued application of current National Board standards.
