  • 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.
