It is with great excitement that the Enumclaw School District announces the following certificated staff members have passed the rigorous process of National Board Certification! This growing group of   32 now represents  just over 13% of the certificated staff in the Enumclaw School District. Washington State is ranked 4th nationally with 15% of all Washington’s teachers being NBCTs.

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 $5,090 bonus each year.
