How does a candidate apply for Full State Funding?
Arkansas legislation has authorized the Arkansas Department of Education to provide funding on a competitive basis for the initial application fee and for three days of released time for teachers seeking National Board Teacher Certification. A potential Arkansas National Board candidate who is interested in the application for Full State Funding must attend an ADE orientation for information on this process. The orientation is a web course facilitated by AETN's Arkansas Ideas website and will be available early May 2013.
Note: Support funds must be repaid to the State of Arkansas if certification is not achieved.« Back to FAQs
