Welcome to the Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center (SEARIC) National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) support site. This site is designed to help candidates find information about the certification process, available mentoring, and resources.
Your "Portfolio Instructions" and Certificate Standards are posted online for your review. We encourage you to carefully study your certificate area portfolios, highlighting new information, as well as practices you are already implementing. You should also review the Guide to National Board Certification for general information, protocols, and policies.
We encourage you to join our Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center (SEARIC) National Board Certification Candidate Support Network. This program provides candidates and teachers interested in Board certification mentoring and support from National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT). These mentors provide meaningful resources and beneficial training to aid candidates in their certification venture.
We look forward to working with you.
