With 90 teachers recently earning certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the district currently has 2,455 nationally certified teachers. The certification is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in teaching.
The certification process, which can take up to three years, requires teachers to take on leadership roles, collaborate with peers and analyze their teaching practices and their impact on student learning. Certifications must be renewed every 10 years.
