Oldham County Schools is proud to announce that 13 teachers obtained their National Board Certification in December.

There are Five Core Propositions that form the basis of the National Board’s standards for certification. This rigorous, peer-reviewed process 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 an essay on their approach to student assessment and take an exam to demonstrate they have mastered their chosen content area of certification. For many teachers, this process takes several years to complete.

“Here at Oldham County Schools, we take pride in encouraging our students and our staff to be the best and brightest in the country,” said Superintendent Greg Schultz, “Our growing number of National Board Certified Teachers is just one example of how well our staff take on that challenge every day and this is an accomplishment worth celebrating.”
