Scottsdale National Board Certified Teachers


What is National Board Certification?
"National Board Certification is a voluntary assessment program designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers, and to embed ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. While state teacher credentialing programs set the basic requirements to teach in each state, National Board Certified Teachers must demonstrate advanced teaching knowledge, skills and practices. Completion of National Board Certification signifies that teachers have developed and demonstrated the skills required of an accomplished education professional."  To find out more about National Board Certification you can link to their official site:  http://boardcertifiedteachers.org/

What support does SUSD provide for National Board Certification?
Scottsdale Unified School District is 3rd in the state for the number of Board Certified teachers, and we'd love to be number one.  Many supports are provided for those interested in completing their certification.  In cooperation with the Arizona K12 Center and the Scottsdale Foundation, candidates from SUSD are able to receive funding to participate in this prestigious program.  Once certified candidates receive a monetary stipend each year for the life of their certification while they're employed with SUSD. For more information, please contact Susan Leonard, NBCT at (480) 484-4900.
