National Board Certification

National Board Certification allows teachers to be recognized for their exceptional teaching practices. Good news! Iowa provides an incentive for educators who become National Board Certified Teachers. For information on how assistance if provided through the Iowa Code, check out the Iowa Department of Education website.

National Board Certification changed in 2016. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards has created a series of informational videos, handouts and other information for you.
