National Board Certification/NBPTS

National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) - www.nbpts.org

Great schools begin with great teachers. Quality teaching is the key to improved student achievement. As such, the Regional Office of Education has supported the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) Program since 1999. NBPTS is recognized for developing the professional standards that define what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. NBPTS also administers National Board Certification, a voluntary assessment program that certifies educators who meet those standards.
