Session: National Board Certification Awareness -Southern Session


The West Virginia Center for Professional Development (WVCPD) has a long history of supporting teachers through the National Board Certification process. Our NBC Support Program is an in-depth professional development opportunity that allows participants to review and better understand the complete National Board Certification standards and process. WVCPD partners with trained National Board support providers to offer teachers structured and sustained support. This begins in the summer with face-to-face professional development, and continues throughout the NBC process with monthly meetings with peers and/or expert mentors.

The National Board Awareness Session will expose teachers to the process of national board certification as well as the rigor, challenge and commitment the process entails. This awareness day is a prerequisite to the full National Board Support session that follows on June 27 and 28, 2018.

With the release of 2017 NBCs, WV is ranked 17th in the nation based on percentage of NBC’s.

At the time of this posting, legislation is moving through the West Virginia Legislature that would eliminate the West Virginia Center for Professional Development. If HB 4006 passes, this session is among those that will be canceled. If this happens, notices will be posted on this website, WVCPD’s social media sites, and via the email address that you have used to register on this site.

The cost for the session is $35 and includes all instruction and materials. Your space will not be guaranteed until your payment for the session is received. For a full refund, cancellations must be made two weeks before the start of the session.
