Providing Support for Teachers Seeking Board Certification
National Board Certification is the highest certificate an educator can achieve in the United States. Administered by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, National Board certification is a rigorous and reflective process that requires teachers to showcase the National Board Standards in their practice.
Since 1996, teachers throughout Arizona have been seeking and achieving National Board Certification. The Arizona K12 Center provides support and resources for teachers to pursue National Board Certification. The impact National Board Certified Teachers have on students and the profession is significant.

The Arizona K12 Center provides a comprehensive system of support for those seeking National Board Certification. From pre-candidacy to candidacy, we have trained support providers and facilitators ready to help you as you make your own journey towards National Board Certification.
One of the ways that the Arizona K12 Center supports the pursuit of National Board Certification is by offering fee support. Pursuit of National Board Certification is an experience like no other and cost shouldn’t be the reason not to embark on the journey. While rigorous, it is one that brings great rewards.
