CSU-National Board for Professional Teaching
Standards (CSU-NBPTS) Network

AS-2513-00/TEKR - November 2-3, 2000

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University endorse the CSU-NBPTS Network's efforts to help interested CSU campuses develop pathways that will support and encourage teachers to seek NBPTS certification.

RATIONALE: The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and its certification of accomplished school teachers is an important element of the continuing professional development of teachers and one which encourages high standards for student learning. The Academic Senate CSU is committed to preparing and supporting teachers whose practices meet the highest standards of quality. NBPTS certification is recognized as evidence of accomplished teaching.

Governor Davis and the California legislature, in concert with their counterparts in a growing number of states, have created significant financial incentives to increase the number of National Board Certified Teachers in the state. The Network will support CSU campuses in developing approaches and programs to assist teachers in achieving NBPTS certification. The Network will encourage campuses to develop programs consistent with their own institutional and regional characteristics and needs while adhering to the core principles of high standards, collaboration with K-12, and access.
