  • Attention NBCTS 
    Please visit your Schoology course for updates regarding all facets of the
    National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) Program
    (due dates, guidelines, and logs)



    Certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) is one of the most significant achievements a teacher can attain. The Los Angeles Unified School District has the largest contingent of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) within California and is committed to encouraging the pursuit of National Board certification; a major form of job-embedded professional learning, and to providing opportunities for NBCTs to grow as teacher leaders.




    The National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT)  Program identifies and provides leadership opportunities for NBCTs within the Los Angeles Unified School District.  This negotiated agreement provides probationary and permanent classroom teachers who hold National Board Certification up to an additional 15% salary compensation: 7 1/2% in recognition of their certification and 7 1/2% upon completion of 92 hours of professional duties outside the normal duties and hours.  Participating teachers must annually submit the Principal/Supervisor Assignment Certification and the Commitment Form.  They must maintain a log of their completed qualifying activities and required evidence as described on the pages of the NBC website.  While we value all NBC Teachers teachers, only those in an eligible assignment will receive the differential.  Only positions represented by UTLA qualify.




    • Please check the Guidelines page for information on Early Start hours.
    • Be sure to review guidelines and logs for any activity you are planning to engage in.  Some guidelines have changed.
