Administrator Professional Education Advisory Board

Charge

The Woodring College of Education is required by the Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction to establish Professional Education Advisory Boards (PEABs) for the following certification programs: administrator, school counselor, and teacher. The Administrator PEAB meets three times each year and

  1. coordinates development and evaluation of professional studies programs for education personnel in the State of Washington;
  2. advises our programs on candidate admissions, program design, and assessments;
  3. reviews candidate performance data, information from follow-up studies, and placement records and, on the basis of that data, makes recommendations for program improvements; and
  4. reviews/endorses our annual report to the Professional Educator Standards Board.

On a rotating basis, the PEAB reviews the administrator preparation program approval standards so that each standard is reviewed at least once every five years. The PEAB recommends additions and/or modifications in professional programs in accordance with the intent of the current standards for preparation and certification.

Mandated and reviewed by the Professional Educator Standards Board, PEABs are unique to the State of Washington and benefit our programs greatly by serving as discriminating advisors and advocates about both university and public school issues. Whenever possible, they promote such cooperation and interaction as may be beneficial to the public and private schools and other agencies in our state. While the Board is advisory, its endorsement of Western’s programs is considered an important indicator of the quality and relevance of professional training at the University.
