Vermont-NEA is the Candidate Support Provider for National Board Certification. We have 85 or so current National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in the classroom, but 173 teachers have achieved National Board Certification. Some NBCTs have retired and some are in other education positions. National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) has been certifying teachers since the early 90s against rigorous standards. Although this is a voluntary certification, it is a natural continuum of our profession. Accomplished professional teachers, as evidenced by National Board Certification, is a growing voice of our profession.
NBPTS has a website for board certified teachers and those wishing to become board certified.

National Board Renewal Course
Vermont-NEA has developed a class for NBCTs up for renewal. This year, participants up for renewal are those who certificates expires in 2020 or 2021. Through review of the Five Core Propositions, Standards for Teaching, three types of writing, theories of leadership, and best practices within content areas, NBCTs create their Profile of Professional Growth and submit it to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and achieve renewal of their National Board Certification. Note: For NBCTs with an expiration date of 11/20, this is your last opportunity to renew. For NBCTs with an expiration date of 11/21, this is your first opportunity to renew, but your last opportunity to renew under the Profile of Professional Growth. Beginning the 20-21 school year, NBPTS has changed the renewal process to a "Maintenance of Certificate" or MOC, which is a five-year certificate.
