Hawaii DOE Reimbursements!
NEWLY CERTIFIED NBCTs: The DOE will send an email with instructions, guidelines, sample documents, and the form required for the $1900.00 reimbursement to all eligible newly certified DOE teachers by mid to late next week. Please ensure your mailing address is current and up-to-date in the DOE system; an outdated address causes delays in the reimbursement process. Contact your school’s SASA for the change of address form if a change is needed. Check your DOE email regularly for updates.
PCS teachers should inquire directly with their school administration for the reimbursement policy and procedures.
ADVANCED CANDIDATES: The $1500.00 reimbursement for those who completed all 4 components but did not certify will be processed soon. If you requested that NBPTS not share information with third parties, you may wish to update your NBPTS account and allow third party data sharing. Our network will share the names of candidates who may be eligible for reimbursement with the DOE who will then share the instructions and forms for reimbursement. If your name is not included, you will need to contact the DOE directly for information after the holidays.
