CODE: SB/H5 VERMONT STANDARDS BOARD FOR PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS POLICY ON NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFICATION IN LIEU OF A RE-LICENSURE PORTFOLIO
Beginning September 1, 2004, if an educator intends to submit his or her National Board Certification in lieu of a re-licensure portfolio, his/her IPDP must be amended to reflect its use as such at least one year before the license is to expire. A letter from the Vermont Department of Education National Board Certification Coordinator verifying submission of the portfolio, or a copy of the National Board Certificate earned, must be submitted to the Local or Regional Standards Board along with current IPDP. A National Board Certification Portfolio may be submitted in lieu of a re-licensure portfolio only once for each comparable endorsement. Comparable endorsements will be established by the VSBPE and the Department of Education and will be updated annually. In addition, the educator will need to submit a new IPDP for the ensuing licensure period as per Regulation 5432 D.4. And if the educator has endorsements being renewed, other than the one addressed in the National Board Certification portfolio, the educator will need to submit evidence of the professional development required for those endorsements as per Regulation 5432 D.2.e and 3.
