Burlington School District Home Page
Local Standards Board

The professional educators of the Burlington School District and the Board of School Commissioners are united in the belief that students are best provided with quality education when educators establish the standards for their own professional growth that are consistent with the Core Teaching and Leadership Standards and the Burlington School District's initiatives.  

We believe that educators, like all professionals, can continue to grow, to improve, to achieve higher levels of competence, and to ensure public trust through a system that permits professional educators to establish those standards that define excellence for their profession. 

We believe that these goals are best met when professionals work together to establish and maintain the process by which individuals are held accountable.
