All National Board for
Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS)
applicants who receive a federally funded fee subsidy must
notify NBPTS, DOE and their district immediately of withdrawal from the NBPTS certification program. In addition,
the applicant forfeits the non-refundable
$500 initial fee payment to the NBPTS. Included in the
portfolio package is a NBPTS withdrawal form or it may be downloaded via nbpts.org. In the event of withdrawal, copies of this form should
be sent to NBPTS, DOE, and the district.
There is no withdrawal fee associated with withdrawal but the withdrawal must be completed directly with National Board on or before
the portfolio due date. Failure to properly withdraw by the deadline will result in the applicant being ineligible to receive federal
funds in the future.
