HTSB is excited to announce that our National Board Pre-Candidacy Course has been approved and is now available in PDE3! This will be especially valuable to any early career teachers who are not yet eligible to begin their National Board journeys, but want to prepare. It is a 3 credit PD course! It will count for salary movement. The cost is listed at $80.00 but we have scholarships available for the pilot.
Here are the details:
