Garie Jean Brownrigg Of the Early Childhood Program has recently received her National Board Certification.

The certification is the most respected professional certification in education. Teachers are only required to meet basic standards in each state while NBC teachers have voluntarily gone above the call of duty to receive the recognition that comes with the certificate.

Garie Jean is the head of the Pre-K program for USD 418. On Monday she gave a report along with Angie Mcdonald highlighting the new standard being rolled out in 2021, Pre-K programs will need to be a full 6 hour day and at least 50% of them must be full day by 2019. Angie and Garie also discussed locations and budgets during the update.
