National Board Support

Spokane Education Association offers cohorts for members pursuing their National Boards Certification. The cohorts have been around for over 4 years now and have been very successful moving candidates to their NB Certification. Here are a few highlights of SEA’s Cohorts:

  • SEA is OSPI approved

  • Our facilitators are state-trained (with OSPI) and they are also SEA members

  • FREE clock hours

  • Max of 10 candidates per cohort group per facilitator

  • Expense is quite less than a local college/university (see fee schedule below)

  • Cohort meeting schedules are determined by the needs/availibilty of your group

Interested in joining 2017-2018? Please fill out this form and send it to Amy Poston at SEA by email at aposton@washingtonea.org, to SEA in school mail, or just email your responses to the questions in the form.

Are you seeking ProTeach support? We previously intended to offer support programs for members pursuing ProTeach but with recent legislation changes on professional certification requirements, SEA plans to shift these efforts elsewhere.
