Following deliberation over multiple regular meetings, the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) revised the options available to already-certified teachers to add content area endorsements to a current teaching credential. The change creates a consistent and logical endorsement policy for both teachers, who wish to expand the courses they are eligible to teach, and districts exploring options to meet the course content and instructional needs of their students. 

The memo - May Board meeting action - Tab 11 - further describes this action by the Board. It also includes links to the meeting materials used by the Board to inform its deliberations and final decision. 

The public can find additional information on how to obtain Board meeting materials and listen to the Board's meeting discussions at its meeting by going to the PESB website ( and selecting either Next / Future Meetings or Previous Meeting Materials.
