Below you'll find an assortment of news and opportunities to start afresh in 2023, to learn something new, to gain practical strategies, and to advance your career in education.

As always, please let us know if we can be of assistance in any way.

In 1999, Dr. Darlene Ruscitti, Regional Superintendent of DuPage County Schools, initiated the National Board Certification for teachers (NBCT) in DuPage. Today, DuPage has the highest number of candidates proportional to our population. We are very proud of the two educators listed below who recently became Board Certified in the State of Illinois, as well as the 26 others who renewed their NBCT.
