Dale Hickam Excellent Teaching Program

The 1998 Florida Legislature, recognizing the essential role that teachers play in preparing Florida’s students for high academic achievement, life-long professions and vocations, and for successful, productive citizenry, passed the Excellent Teaching Program Act. The program was renamed the Dale Hickam Excellent Teaching Program in 2002. The 2008 Florida Legislature adopted substantial changes to the program. The purposes of this program are to provide bonuses to teachers who:
  1. attain advanced certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
  2. are NBPTS certified and who mentor non-NBPTS Florida teachers.
