Notice of special meeting

A 30-minute executive session regarding personnel decisions
Public session- regarding personnel decisions
Public hearing on certificate fees
PESB is proposing to increase certificate fees by $1 for each year of validity. This would mean educators would pay $6 for each year of validity instead of $5. A certificate with a five-year validity period would have a certificate fee of $30 instead of $25. This certificate fee increase would not impact paraeducators. The WAC amendments for the fee increase will appear in the November board consent agenda. Learn more about certification fees.
On October 26, PESB convened a virtual hearing to collect public comment on this matter. If you were unable to attend the hearing, or if you wish to provide written comment, please follow the instructions in the section below.
Our Boards welcome and encourage input from stakeholders, partners, and the general public. Time is set aside at every meeting for public comment and is designed as a limited public forum. Learn how to submit public comment.
