SB 667 - The State Board of Education shall establish a program of salary supplements for teachers receiving certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. An annual salary stipend of $5000 will be given for a period of ten years, starting in the school year in which the teacher receives certification.

The salary supplement shall be in addition to the base salary to which the teacher would otherwise be entitled. The salary supplements shall be paid only during those school years in which the teacher is employed with a Missouri school district.

A teacher certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards may also receive a payment of 10% of the teacher's base pay for any school year in which the teacher serves as a mentor teacher to other candidates for National Board certification in a program established by the school district and meeting standards established by the State Board of Education.
