Agenda Item #8


Title
B-2. Recognition of National Board Certified Teachers

Discussion
We now have certified 627 National Board Certified Teachers, with 567 currently actively employed and 60 of them retired or out of the district.  NBCTs are now in all 85 of our schools and two Charter Schools.  With 11.3% of our eligible teachers National Board Certified, we are moving toward our Strategic Plan goal of having 15% National Board Certified Teachers by 2010.  For 2007, Brevard Public Schools ranked third in the nation (large districts) for % of NBCTs.

Recommendation
Recognize the 92 Brevard County teachers who received National Board Certification in November 2007 as the "NB Class of 2007".
