WCPSS remains U.S. district with the most nationally certified teachers

The Wake County Public School System continues to lead the nation with the highest number of nationally board-certified teachers. Information released by National Board for Professional Teaching Standards shows an additional 111 Wake County educators earned their national certifications in 2012, and 107 more renewed their certifications.

Certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based assessment that typically takes one to three years to complete. Teachers must complete the renewal process every 10 years.

The national program began 25 years ago under the leadership of former North Carolina Governor Jim Hunt. In the decades since, more than 100,000 teachers have earned the distinction nationwide. Read more about the program and research on ties to student success here.
