    • What NB Certification Is…and Isn’t
      Is…
      … a demonstration of the impact of your teaching on student achievement
      … a process that consists of a portfolio and series of assessments
      … a credential that can trump state requirements for certification
      … represents an investment of about $2800
      Can…
      … be funded through state programs or grants
      … result in a financial supplement
      Isn’t…
      … equivalent to an advanced degree
      … being highly qualified
      … a guarantee of employment protection

    • Things to know
      Remember that your community connections in your Documented Accomplishments must be within the last year
      Documented Accomplishments are a good part of the portfolio to look at first and then revisit last. You will see them through the lens of “student achievement” after writing the other entries.
      *** You must have release forms on file from all students and any adults in the videos***

    • Something else to think about….
      Take One! allows to start the National Board Process with a single portfolio entry – Entry 2. This might be a good “first step” for those considering the process.
      With Take One!, you can “bank” the scores and complete the rest of the portfolio the next year.
