    National Board Certification is a very prestigious credential. Teachers who achieve certification have met rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment, and peer review. The certification process focuses on classroom instruction and is ultimately designed to benefit students. With only about 30% of National Board candidates earning certification on their first attempt, the certification process can take up to three years.
    The percentage of Nationally Board Certified Teachers in District 105 places the district among the leaders in Illinois.
