Vermont-NEA is the Candidate Support Provider for National Board Certification.  We have 85 or so current National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in the classroom, but 173 teachers have achieved National Board Certification.  Some NBCTs have retired and some are in other education positions. National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) has been certifying teachers since the early 90s against rigorous standards.  Although this is a voluntary certification, it is a natural continuum of our profession.  Accomplished professional teachers, as evidenced by National Board Certification,  is a growing voice of our profession.

NBPTS has a website for board certified teachers and those wishing to become board certified.

National Board Renewal Course

Vermont-NEA has developed a class for NBCTs up for renewal.  This year, participants up for renewal are those who certificates expires in 2020 or 2021.  Through review of the Five Core Propositions, Standards for Teaching, three types of writing, theories of leadership, and best practices within content areas, NBCTs create their Profile of Professional Growth and submit it to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and achieve renewal of their National Board Certification.  If you are up for renewal and would like to participate in a renewal course, please download and send in the registration form which will be available in July.

For NBPTS resources including videos, handouts, and other important information can be found here.  Below, you will find an informational Prezi and short videos.
