Education Leadership Oklahoma (ELO) is a challenge to Oklahoma teachers to participate and complete a process enabling them to reach the highest standards of their field - National Board Certification.
Administered by the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation, ELO funds candidate support for Oklahoma educators seeking National Board Certification.
National Board Certification establishes the highest standards for a teacher to be judged by their peers as one who is accomplished, makes sound judgments about student learning, and acts effectively on those judgments. The ELO project seeks these qualities when choosing applicants to receive the grant provided for by the State Legislature to proceed with the National Board Certification Process.
National Board Certification gives teachers a greater sense of accomplishment. The Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation encourages teachers to show their dedication to education through this tremendous opportunity.

Currently, Oklahoma ranks ninth in the nation with over 3,056 National Board Certified teachers.
