American Board is rolling out a new addition to our program in Idaho and North Dakota. It’s called the Clinical Experience- and it’s providing even more support to new teachers by ensuring that they get access to qualified coaching and evaluators during their first year in the classroom. Anyone who enrolls in our program for Idaho or North Dakota must complete a Clinical Experience after passing American Board’s Professional Teaching Knowledge (PTK) exam and subject area exam.
