Educators from around the district achieved National Board certification in 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 to formalize that they have met the highest standards in their profession.

Earning certification requires up to 400 hours of additional work, including passing a content knowledge exam, submitting for review samples of student work and the candidate’s feedback, filming lessons for evaluation and compiling a portfolio of self-reflection pieces. Congratulations!
