Oldham County Schools is proud to announce that 17 teachers obtained their National Board Certification in December.

National Board Certification recognizes accomplished teachers who work to generate continued improvement in the learning environment. This certification is a voluntary, advanced teacher credential which can take several years to complete. It is a rigorous, peer-reviewed process that ensures teachers have proven skills to advance student achievement. As part of this process, teachers must analyze their teaching context and students’ needs, demonstrate what they have done outside of the classroom to improve student success, submit videos of their teaching, and provide student work samples that demonstrate growth. Additionally, candidates must submit essays describing, analyzing and reflecting on their practices and the evidence, and pass an exam to demonstrate they have mastered their chosen content area of certification. Just under 3% of the nation’s teachers are nationally board certified.

“Oldham County Schools is recognized as a National Board Accomplished District and our National Board Certified Teachers are a shining example of what makes our district exemplary,” said Superintendent Greg Schultz, “I am proud of our teachers and their demonstrated commitment to excellence.”
