Session: National Board Certification Mentor/Support Provider Update Session


Beginning with the 2014-2015 cycle, National Board is revising the certification process in order to reduce barriers for applicants. These changes are intended to improve NBC and allow more teachers to pursue certification while maintaining the highest standards of the profession. The pricing for the process will also be reduced.

The revision will allow certification to be comprised of four components: Content Knowledge, Differentiation in Instruction, Teaching Practice and Learning Environment, and Effective and Reflective Practitioners. The timeline below shows how the components will be released over the next three cycle years.
