Professional Education Advisory Boards

The Department of Education has two professional education advisory boards (PEABs) that oversee, advise and support the work of our professional preparation programs.

The first is our Teacher Preparation PEAB, which helps direct our preservice teacher certification and professional development programs for teachers.

The second is our Administrator PEAB, which oversees our administrator and leadership programs at both the residency (initial) and professional (advanced level).

Both boards consist of professionals in the field who are appointed by various professional associations per the requirements of the Washington Administrative Code. The PEABs typically meet on campus three to four times per year.
