Los Alamos Public Schools was the recipient of the New Mexico National Board Certified Teacher Network Capacity Building Award, the schools said in a press release.
The award goes to districts that “have helped build capacity for improved student achievement by supporting teachers in the National Board process,” according to the NM NBCT.
Working with the network, LAPS sponsored 15 first-time candidates and two advanced candidates last year and 15 more first-time candidates, as well as six advanced candidates, this year.
The Class of 2013 consists of nine new board certified teachers from LAPS, which tied for second in districts from around the state.
“For this outstanding contribution to the teaching profession and those teachers who seek the top education credential of National Board Certified Teacher, we honor Dr. Schmidt and Los Alamos Public Schools,” the release said.
