MNEA National Board Jump Start is a comprehensive seminar designed to provide National Board candidates important information about the certification process, time to examine component and Assessment Center requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification — all in a supportive, constructive, and collegial environment.

This workshop is for candidates who plan to submit any components of National Board Certification in the 2020-2021 school year. Find out more about National Board Certification at www.nbpts.org.

Bring your standards, portfolio instructions, laptop computer and personal calendar with you.


If you are just starting the National Board process, we recommend you attend all sessions. First time NB Jump Start participants must attend Foundations I. Returning participants choose which days to attend, depending on where they are in the certification process. Scroll down this page to read descriptions of each session. Attend the 3-day program for $135 (MNEA members) or $480 (non-members). Registration includes lunch.

Some districts use Title II, Professional Development Committee, or other district funds to pay for National Board Jump Start registration and lodging. If you need more information to submit a request for funding, please contact Ann.Jarrett@mnea.org.
