Follow PESB rule-making using the links below and PESB meeting materials. Title 181 in the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) gives the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) policy- and rule-making authority for the preparation, certification, continuing education and assignment for all certificated K-12 educators. More information is available through the Office of the Code Reviser.
Legal rules for teacher preparation, credentialing, and certification that have been proposed are listed below. The Code Reviser also posts proposed rule changes and hearing dates here. You may submit questions to PESB regarding proposed rule changes or testify at public hearings of the PESB. All proposals are for changes to Title 181.
Expedited rule changes are those that are either required by statute change or are technical in nature and do not change the underlying policy. PESB infrequently uses Expedited rule changes. If there is a public comment to the state register any time during the 75 days required for Expedited change, then the rule must be filed as a full proposal and a public hearing is required. Below are changes being proposed and awaiting the 75 days before becoming permanent.
