Georgia Incentives?

Nothing has gone through yet, but my husband has been looking at some jobs in Georgia. Do any of the districts there pay an annual stipend for National Boards? I think the state does if you certified before a certain year, but I just certified.

I used to live in Georgia and from what I understand there is not. They took away any incentives years ago but people may have been grandfathered in.

But depending on how close you are to state borders, South Carolina and Alabama I believe do pay stipends. And I know NC does!

South Carolina does not pay the stipend anymore. I'm in the very last group that's going to get it once I certify.

Well that stinks, and ensures that I will be staying in NC! (I have had a friend trying to get me to go to Fort Mill, SC)

While Georgia doesn't offer stipends for NB it may make you more attractive to prospective schools, and the salary in some counties in metro Atlanta are more than I make in NC with my Masters and NB Stipend.

The job he is looking at is in Atlanta, so I guess we'd live close to there. I looked at a school district in Alabama but they don't publish salary schedules and said that there was no guarantee of a raise each year which was a bit worrying

I have some family that live in North Fulton County who are teachers, and they get paid very well there and it is a very nice area to live in. If I went back I think that is where I would go to. One good thing about Georgia is that they do offer pay for advanced degrees such as Specialists, which my state currently does not. NB is the only way teachers can get a pay increase in NC now.

Update: South Carolina may be reinstating the stipend! Major education legislation is being debated now.
