Purpose Statements:

The main purposes of this network include:


How did this network get started?

An attempt was made in the spring of 2000 to begin a national board network in Missouri.  Governor Holden attended a meeting with several NBCT's, facilitators, Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) staff, and other stakeholders to encourage them to help lobby the state legislatures to pass his bill supporting a state funded $5,000 stipend for NBCT's.  The effort to pass his legislation was unsuccessful during the next two legislative sessions and network momentum began to dwindle.

In the summer of 2003, with our NBCT's numbers nearly doubling each year, efforts to rebuild the network were revived.  Charter members of the Missouri NBPTS Network met in July and again in October of 2003 to complete the National Affiliates Application and Agreement forms necessary to become the Missouri Affiliate of the NBPTS.

Who is eligible for membership in the network?

Educators and stakeholders willing to work in collaboration with others to fulfill the mission and purpose as state above.  Currently network members include NBCT's, facilitators, RPDC leaders, DESE staff, association staff/leaders, college/university instructors, etc.  We need you!
