Funding Support Available for Tuition Costs for Seattle University Program in support of new and continuing National Board Candidates
The Northshore Schools Foundation made a generous contribution to help fund support for National Board Certificated Teacher (NBCT) candidates in the Northshore School District. The foundation is providing funding up to $20,000 to help certificated staff defray tuition costs for enrolling and participating in the Seattle University National Board Candidate Support Program. This program supports staff who are beginning and continuing the process of seeking National Board certification.
If you will be participating in the SU National Board Candidate Support Program and wish to apply for tuition assistance, please complete the Letter of Agreement form and submit it to Human Resources by May 31. The amount of reimbursement (not to exceed the cost of the tuition) will be determined after May 31 when the number of participants in the program is known.
The Letter of Agreement provides specific information for applying and receiving financial support for the SU National Board Candidate Support Program.
