National Board Certification is a demonstration of a candidate's teaching practice as measured against high and rigorous standards.
This professional certification is used in the Utah State Licensing System to certify Level 3 distinguished teaching in our schools.
It is also a means of professional growth and development. Teachers pursuing NB Certification complete a professional portfolio and take an in-depth content assessment. The process deepens subject matter knowledge and leads teachers to become more skillful in daily classroom instruction and student assessment.
The ultimate result is improved student learning. The success of National Board Certification comes from the power of a good idea: Quality teachers are necessary for student learning!
NBPTS leads the way in making teaching a profession that is dedicated to student learning, while upholding high standards for professional performance. We have raised the standards for teachers, strengthened their educational preparation, and created performance-based assessments that demonstrate accomplished application of the standards.
