National Board Networks Honors Program Recognizes 21 Networks

Today, the National Board is recognizing 21 National Board Networks that model excellence in support of the National Board’s mission.

The 76 National Board networks play a key role in building and sustaining National Board certification, supporting educators who wish to challenge themselves and prove they teach to the profession’s highest standards. The networks also build pathways for National Board Certified Teachers to serve leadership roles throughout their region and state. 

“Our staff is dedicated and we push ourselves daily to impact education nationwide. All the networks consistently deliver on the ground in states and districts across the whole country. We are grateful for each network’s unique contributions advancing our mission. I’m especially excited to honor the awardees for standing out as exemplary. We’re lucky to have their partnership,” said Peggy Brookins, NBCT, President CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
