The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards has announced that Buncombe County Schools has been named a National Board Accomplished District. We are among the 81 top districts nationwide, having the highest percentage of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs). We are proud and committed to supporting teachers to be their best and help advance student learning.

“High-quality teaching is the most important in-school factor impacting student learning. The districts that measured up to be included in the National Board Accomplished District program understand the value of accomplished teaching and support teachers to be their best,” said Peggy Brookins, a National Board Certified Teacher and the president and CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

All BCS teachers are licensed through the State Board of Education and Department of Public Instruction. This licensure provides opportunities for continuing education and accountability; our educators remain at the forefront of modern and engaging teaching practices. NBCT certification, which is voluntary, adds an additional layer of rigor to a teacher’s ongoing  training.

NBCT Certification includes the development of the National Board’s Five Core Propositions:

1. Teachers are committed to students and their learning.
2. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students.
3. Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning.
4. Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience.
5. Teachers are members of learning communities.

As of 2018, BCS ranked 17th in the nation for being home to the most NBCTs!
