Newton-Conover is one of two school districts in North Carolina to receive the National Board NT3 Grant. This two-year grant provides the district with more than $100,000 to improve teachers’ capacity for deeper understanding of quality teaching. Resources, coaching, professional development opportunities, and learning experiences are all part of the National Board grant. Currently, we have 14 National Board Certified Teachers in Newton-Conover Schools. This year, we have approximately 24 teachers seeking National Board Certification.
Our NT3 team has used implementation science to develop district-wide and site-specific change ideas that include:
Developing a district-wide shared understanding of accomplished teaching through aligning the NC Teacher Evaluation Rubric, the Newton-Conover Instructional Core Framework and the Accomplished Body of Teaching (Structure working opportunities to deepen pedagogical content knowledge./Introduce and reference crosswalk between accomplished teaching body of knowledge & local/state frameworks)
- Building a vision and support structures to empower accomplished teachers to recognize seeking National Board Certification as a logical next step in their career
