The business community is committed to funding 100 National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in Huntsville City, Madison City and Madison County School Systems. NBCTs are proven to increase classroom achievement and improve classroom management nationwide. Here’s what you need to know.
National Board Certification is a voluntary advanced professional certification for PreK-12 educators that identifies teaching expertise through a performance-based, peer-reviewed assessment.
- Content Knowledge – computer assessment
- Differentiation in Instruction – portfolio submissions
- Teaching Practice & Learning Environment – video & written portfolio submissions
- Effective & Reflective Practitioner – portfolio submission
The state of Mississippi determined that for every $1 they invest in NBCT they capture a return of $31 in the way of remediation and summer school support that is not needed when students meet learning standards.
