National Board Comes to District 101

What is National Board Certification (NBC)? NBC is avoluntary, advanced teaching credential that goes beyondstate licensure. NBC utilizes National Board Standards as a measure for determining what accomplished teachersshould know and be able to do. The National Board thencertifies teachers who successfully complete its rigorous certification process. This process includes two years ofextensive study, physical and video evidence collection, andstandardized testing. Teachers who pursue NBC work under the direction of the following five core propositions:


1. Teachers are committed to students and theirlearning.

2. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how toteach those subjects to students.

3. Teachers are responsible for managing andmonitoring student learning.

4. Teachers think systematically about their practiceand learn from experience.

5. Teachers are members of learning communities.


Last spring 19 District 101 teachers applied for and wereaccepted to undergo the two-year NBC process. These staffare part of a District-only cohort that will meet one to two times per month after school for the next two school years.The benefit of establishing a local cohort versus independentstudy is the ability for the locally established NBC administrator(Sarah Coffey) and NBC teacher liaison (Laura Broadnax), in conjunction with the provided NBC expertfacilitator, to tailor the 24, two-hour learning sessions to localimprovement goals. Doing so allows us to closely align thiswork with our continued vision, so staff are able to see theconsistent connection of this professional development to ourImprovement Wheel (shown previously). In sum, NBC studyis professional development around the same research-basedtenets that we are promoting within District 101. What anexciting undertaking for so many talented staffers and our

broader District!
