To date, 103 South Dakota teachers have achieved National Board Certification, including LuAnn Lindskov, South Dakota Teacher of the Year for 2014.
Some school districts use Title monies or Race to the Top funds to provide fee support to candidates seeking certification. Please inquire with your principal or district administrator to see if this is a possibility for you.
Scholarships for fee support may be available for South Dakota teachers. Visit our scholarship page for more information.
Candidate support is often available from professional organizations, universities and regional professional development centers.
A number of school districts provide local support for their teachers seeking National Board Certification. Please inquire with an NBCT you may know, your principal or your state teachers association to see if there is a candidate support program near you.
Universities frequently provide graduate credit to teachers pursuing National Board Certification. Please inquire with your local university to see if this is a possibility for you.
