Your Input Needed

ACTFL and the Standards Collaborative Board have been working with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) on expanding the languages and teaching levels available for National Board Certification. NBPTS has assembled a committee of language educators to draft a revision to the original standards developed in 2001. The revision of the standards is a necessary step before new assessments can be developed to expand National Board Certification to additional languages and levels. You may download both the standards and the survey from the link below but you need to complete the survey online. Please make time to read and react to the revised standards by September 5.
