R.I. district to consider National Board Certification in hiring decisions

Rhode Island's Scituate school district no longer will use seniority as the sole factor in deciding teacher hiring. Instead, teachers will earn up to 15 points for factors such as National Board Certification, graduate work, advanced degrees and length of service. Teachers can earn up to five points for longevity, and seniority still will be the deciding factor in recalling teachers from layoffs. The Providence Journal (R.I.) (via Accomplished Teacher)
