More than 55 NECSD educators have earned Google Certified Educator Level 1 Educator status and more than a dozen have earned Google Certified Educator Level 2 since October 2018. Dozens more have participated in Professional Development and registered for the exam. These educators were publicly recognized at an April Board of Education meeting.
