This year, 41 Frederick County Public Schools teachers earned National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification for the first time. Eight teachers also became recertified as National Board for Professional Teaching Standards educators.

National Board Certification is a nationwide certification program designed to recognize accomplished teachers and generate ongoing improvement in schools. Earning National Board Certification is also supported through the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future. Teachers who earn certification are eligible to earn a stipend. 

“I am so proud of the educators who worked diligently to earn certification,” FCPS Superintendent Dr. Cheryl L. Dyson said. “By working hard to achieve this status, the educators are serving as a shining example of how to support every student, every day.”

The National Board Certified educators were recognized during last week’s Board of Education of Frederick County meeting. The newly certified National Board Certified Educators will also be celebrated at an FCPS event in April at the Learning & Leadership Center in Walkersville.
