NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED TEACHERS

ABOUT NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFICATION

Every student deserves to be taught by an accomplished teacher. National Board Certification was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. It is the most respected professional certification available in K-12 education.

 

Created by teachers, for teachers, the National Board Standards represent a consensus among educators about what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. Board certification is available in 25 certificate areas spanning 16 disciplines from Pre-K through 12th grade.

 

The certification process requires that teachers demonstrate standards-based evidence of the positive effect they have on student learning in alignment with the Five Core Propositions. They must exhibit a deep understanding of their students, content knowledge, use of data and assessments and teaching practice. They must also show that they participate in learning communities and provide evidence of ongoing reflection and continuous learning.

 

More than 118,000 teachers across the United States have achieved Board certification.

NATIONAL BOARD AT BASIC ACADEMY

Basic Academy has been a National Board Professional Development School for four years. In this time, we have had great success, and we now have more National Board Certified teachers than any other high school in the State of Nevada. Teachers have up to five years to complete the rigorous certification process, which includes completing three time-intensive components and one exam.

 

They submit videos, student work samples, assessment data, commentaries, plans, and reflections to The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and then wait months for the score release. At that point, if they did not certify, they have to redo components from scratch, and they are limited to three submissions per component. It is time intensive enough that districts across the nation equate successful completion with a graduate degree in education.
