Network to Transform Teaching (NT3)

The Network to Transform Teaching (NT3) is a consortium of 10 states, 50 districts, and 130+ schools that seeks to strengthen teacher development systems so all students have access to accomplished teachers every day. NT3 is anchored in the National Board’s longstanding promise to the field to be by teachers, for teachers. NT3 relies on the wisdom of practitioners at the school, district and state levels to develop resources and strategies that will bring accomplished, Board-certified teaching to scale. As a Networked Improvement Community, NT3 uses a structured approach to find systematic solutions to complex problems using an evidence-based process, balancing local context with nationwide applicability.

Building Accomplished Teaching for Native American Students

Since 2015, the National Board has been working with the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) to achieve the goal of having 1,000 Board-certified teachers across the 183 BIE and tribally-operated schools in the United States. Since its inception, this project has engaged more than 450 affiliated teachers and seen a 25% increase in the number of National Board Certified Teachers.

Through this project, the National Board aims to:

  • Conduct orientation and recruitment activities to BIE affiliated teachers to provide information about the Board certification process
  • Provide candidates for Board certification with mentoring and support from NBCT Network partners in the field
  • Utilize resources available through the Accomplished Teaching, Learning and Schools (ATLAS) library and What Teachers Should Know and Be Able to Do for administrators and teachers to support strategic discussions on National Board Standards, the Five Core Propositions and best teaching practices.
