2 FY Payments During the school year, National Board supplements will be paid in 1/12th increments. The payments will initially be based on the number of national board teachers from FY Payments will be adjusted based on nationally certified teachers reported on Personnel Report (MSIS). 2

3 What this means: You must have your national board personnel entered into MSIS by January 31 st (including all newly certified individuals) Once we run the report on the national board individuals, your district total will be adjusted to actual. After the adjustment, payments will reflect the new amount for the remainder of the year. Some districts may owe the State a refund. 3

4 4 FY Payments MS CODE § (2) (a) The following employees shall receive an annual salary supplement in the amount of Six Thousand Dollars ($6,000.00), plus fringe benefits, in addition to any other compensation to which the employee may be entitled: Any licensed teacher who has met the requirements and acquired a Master Teacher certificate from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and who is employed by a local school board or the State Board of Education as a teacher and not as an administrator.
