MBS Recognized as a National Board Accomplished District
Thursday, June 10, 2021 -- Mountain Brook Schools was recognized as a National Board Accomplished District for the 2020-21 school year. The recognition comes from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards acknowledging that more than 20 percent of teachers in the MBS district are Board-certified.
This year, MBS is one of only four school systems in the state of Alabama with more than 20-percent of its teachers Board-certified.
According to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards website, National Board certification was designed to develop, retain, and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. It is the most respected professional certification available in K-12 education.
