Overview of Process for Florida Retake Candidates Candidate Cycle
FL Retake Guidelines Federal subsidy funding will be awarded on a first- come, first-served basis (based on the date a candidate submits their retake app) Only candidates who have not previously received federal funding are eligible to receive an allocation Allocations will be made in the amount of $350 per candidate (The cost for each retake entry/exercise is $350) Funding is limited and no more allocations will be granted once all funds are expended, regardless if the deadline has passed or not.
FL Retake Process 1.NBPTS will create a report that identifies, in application submission order, the FL retake candidates who have not previously received federal funding. 2.NBPTS/FL DOE will use this report to create weekly transmittal memos that will be forwarded for processing. 3.IMPORTANT: Allocations will be awarded until either all FL federal subsidy funds have been expended or until January 13, 2006, whichever comes first.
Things To Do DHETP Contacts: Disseminate information to candidates FL DOE: Update information on all state –produced materials (including DOE Web site) NBPTS: Update FL retake information on NBPTS Web site
Things To Keep In Mind FL/DOE will send the first transmittal memo for processing on Wednesday, November 23. After that, transmittal memos will be sent for processing twice a week. Eligible candidates should allow 7-14 days between the time they submit their retake application and the time the allocation is reflected on their account
Things To Keep In Mind, cont. Candidates will be responsible for making payments directly to NBPTS for any entry/exercise they wish to retake above and beyond what is funded with federal subsidy Retake materials (for those candidates who are retaking portfolio entries) will not be shipped until full fee payment has been paid
Highlights! No more checks mailed to the DOE! Retake application batches will be processed bi- weekly, so candidates should receive their materials much more expeditiously than in years past! Requires no extra action or request from the candidate! NBPTS will let the DOE know who has submitted a retake app and who is eligible! Process is streamlined!
