National Board Certification

Newton-Conover City Schools support the National Board certification process by providing facilitated support for candidates going through the NB certification process. Candidate support is optional for teachers completing their National Boards, however teacher candidates who are part of a support program show a significantly higher passing rate.

As part of a support group, candidates receive support, instruction, and feedback from trained facilitators who are NBCTs.


A learning session and/or a work session is offered monthly.  Teachers will have the opportunity to learn about the National Board process, receive quality training around completing the components, what it means to be an accomplished teacher, and time to work with NBCT(s) (who will be available for support).
