Obtaining Rank I through National Board Certification is an economical method. It is also, hands down, an excellent professional development opportunity in visual art. There are also stipends through the state ($2000) for each year you are certified, and some school districts also offer additional stipends. In the past, the state has offered financial aid for applicants, but this varies by the year.
Another option is to enroll in a Rank I program through a University. Many universities offer programs specific to teachers.
