The large number of National Board renewal candidates in the last few years, and the amount of time that has passed since the creation of an equivalency chart between National Board Certification and Washington state endorsements has brought two National Board issues to attention at this time:
- Clock Hours for National Board Renewal
- National Board Endorsement Equivalencies
The National Board Issues Work Group will develop recommendations to the board regarding these issues.
