    National Board Certified Teacher Program

    Certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) is one of the most significant achievements a teacher can attain. The Los Angeles Unified School District has the largest contingent of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) within California and is committed to encouraging the pursuit of National Board certification; a major form of job-embedded professional learning, and to providing opportunities for NBCTs to grow as teacher leaders.

    Program Description

    The National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT)  Program identifies and provides leadership opportunities for NBCTs within the Los Angeles Unified School District.  This negotiated agreement provides probationary and permanent classroom teachers who hold National Board Certification an additional 15% salary compensation: 7 1/2% in recognition of their certification and 7 1/2% upon completion of 92 hours of professional duties outside the normal duties and hours.  Participating teachers must annually submit an action plan with their proposed activities and maintain a log of their completed qualifying activities.

     Incentive

    Please remember:

    • In order to be certain you are eligible for compensation for hours worked please be sure to read the guidelines for activities and documentation as posted on the Guidelines and Task Guidelines pages of this website. 
    • If you have questions about eligible hours please contact your NBC liaison for further information.  We are always happy to assist.
    • There is an annual NBC INFORMATION SESSION to describe policies and procedures for NBC compensation.  Please look for offerings on the Learning Zone beginning in late July through September each year and again in December/January for newly certified NBC Teachers. We look forward to seeing you there!
    • Teachers newly certified in November should plan to attend both the NBCT recognition event and the the NBC Information Session.

     Annual Forms to be submitted are posted on the Forms page of the website 

    Each year NBC Teachers must update their status.  Both the Principal Assignment Certification and the Commitment Form/Action Plan must be submitted by all active NBC Teachers in order to be eligible to continue receiving your differential. 
     
    Additional forms are to be submitted contingent on whether or not hours are being submitted or based on individual circumstances.
