22 AISD Teachers Earn National Board Certification

AISD employs more National Board Certified Teachers than any other Texas district

Tonight, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees recognized 22 newly certified or renewed teachers who have completed the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
This is the 15th year that AISD's professional development department has worked to guide a group of committed teachers toward this powerful professional development opportunity. 
A three-year study by the National Research Council of the National Academies found that National Board Certification has a positive effect on student achievement, teacher retention and professional development. 
AISD employs more National Board Certified Teachers than any other Texas district, with 242 National Board Certified Teachers for the 2014-15 school year.
