The Professional Educator Standards Board is committed to providing equal access to its services and programs to individuals with disabilities. Accordingly, in providing its services, either directly or through contractual arrangements, PESB will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided with an opportunity to participate in or benefit from the aid, benefit, or service that is equal to that afforded others.
To ensure equal access, PESB will ensure that requests for accommodation are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and that, based on an individualized analysis, reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures are provided when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability, unless PESB can demonstrate that making the modification would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity.
If you have a disability and require special assistance or accommodations, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-725-6275 to let us know what requirements are needed. To allow time to make arrangements, requests should be made as soon as possible, but at least seven business days prior to the scheduled meeting, event, or conference you plan to attend.
Request accommodations for educator assessments
Requests for accommodations for educator assessments should be made directly to the provider of the assessment.
