West Side Component 4 Jump Start: Snohomish

For current candidates returning to the National Board Certification process:

WEA is offering a one-day Jump Start for returning candidates to dive into Component 4. Jump Start is an important resource that complements other supports for candidates including facilitated candidate cohorts, and WEA Home Stretch. This one-day Jump Start will only be for current returning candidates who have completed at least one component in the last candidate cycle.

Component 4 - Effective and Reflective Practitioner: Dig into component directions, standards and scoring rubrics to understand what candidates must do in this component, and learn resources for gaining data and assessment literacy skills. Academy participants are existing candidates who have been working on National Board Certification.

Component 4 Collaboration:
Connect with like certificate candidates to co-construct meaning and to dive into a plan for developing component 4.

We look forward to supporting you at a great Jump Start event! Come prepared to learn, think, plan and connect with other amazing teachers. There are several documents you will need to bring to Jump Start to ensure a successful candidacy preparation. Please click here for instructions to download and print these important documents! CTE Candidates please click here. Please note that there will be no access to a printer or copier at the Jump Start location. It will take more time than you think to complete this task -- don't wait until the day before Jump Start!

If you have previously attended WEA Jump Start and still have all of your printed materials, including your standards, five core propositions, and other material, then at this time you just need to print your Component 4 Instructions. You will also want to print an updated "Guide to National Board Certification." See link for instructions. Bring all of your materials to Jump Start.

National Board Renewal Jump Start WEA registration fees include breakfast, lunch, beverages and snacks, training fees, clock hours, and materials. Up to 6 Clock Hours are available for Component 4 Jump Start. All participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging.
