National Board Certification

NYSUT is pleased to support our members interested in pursuing National Board Certification. In order to provide greater equity and access, NYSUT is now working with new facilitator training materials developed and provided free of charge by the certifying organization - the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Because these NPBTS materials are the most current and most closely aligned training materials to support the National Board Program for our members, Jump Start materials will be retired from NYSUT PLF training and should no longer be used in New York.

If you were unable to virtually attend the April 14th event celebrating the new NBCTs, you are in luck! The event was recorded and is available to be viewed on demand here.
