Eight Enumclaw Teachers Receive National Board Certification!



It is with great excitement that the Enumclaw School District announces eight additional certificated staff members have passed the rigorous process of National Board Certification! This announcement came last Friday from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. These eight certificated staff members join 21 Enumclaw School District staff members who have already passed this rigorous process. This growing group of 29 now represents just over 11% of the certificated staff in the Enumclaw School District. This percentage is well above the posted state average of 5% on the OSPI website.

National Board Certification is a voluntary assessment program designed to identify, recognize and reward accomplished teachers who meet high and rigorous standards based on what teachers should know and be able to do. All candidates who receive this prestigious certification will receive a $5,000 bonus each year.

Below is a list of this year's staff members who received certification as well as previous candidates.
