PESB encourages preparation program providers to work with state and local agencies to address specific endorsement or educator role shortages. [Read more…] about Endorsements recommended by educator preparation program providers
The Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) uses a variety of data to inform policy decisions and assess the effectiveness of our initiatives. These data originate from sources such as licensure and certificate programs, from fellow state agencies such as the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), as well as directly from the test vendors. Our partners and stakeholders can use these data points to help inform and support their own work.
PESB understands the complex issues related to research and data when it comes to racial equity. We recognize the importance of analyzing data by race-ethnicity, and aim to disrupt the legacy of harm caused by inappropriate research methods and (mis)use of data to make claims about others. PESB strives for data relations and literacy that support transparency, public accountability, informed decision-making, and active community and stakeholders partnerships. We aim to employ equitable data practices to forward PESB’s vision of “an equity-minded educator workforce that facilitates learning and growth for each and every student.”
How do I use the data portal?
The search box on the right hand side of the page (or bottom of the page, if you are on a mobile device) allows you to refine the data queries based on the contents of the data and the school years involved. You can also page through all of the data queries in the portal using no filters.
How do I use these data?
In addition to PESB’s use of these data for its work, many partners and stakeholders including educator preparation programs, education researchers, professional organizations, media, legislative staff, and elected officials look to PESB to provide insight and responses to questions related to educator preparation, licensure, and workforce in Washington State. PESB aims to provide the most valuable and accurate data possible. To do that, we collaborate closely with data contributors to make sure that data inquiries can be clearly displayed and understood.
Why could these data look different from other data?
There are a variety of data sources that could be used, and depending on which one is used (or in combination), there may be variance in reported numbers. The caveats and methodology section of each data display include its data source and the analytic choices made that could impact the numbers PESB reports.
We hope that as you explore these pages and make meaning from these data, additional questions and feedback emerge. Please send all comments or questions to email@example.com.

This maps shows the endorsement availability of educator preparation programs (EPPs) with an online only presence by region. The ESD boundaries have been used to delineate the different regions. An endorsement can be selected from the list on the right side to narrow the map display to just the availability of that single endorsement. The map can also be toggled to show the availability of teacher preparation programs, ESA preparation programs, or admin preparation programs. This map does not include Alternative Route programs, which will be posted to this page soon. [Read more…] about Online program access
This maps shows the endorsement availability of educator preparation programs (EPPs) with a physical presence by region. The ESD boundaries have been used to delineate the different regions. An endorsement can be selected from the list on the right side to narrow the map display to just the availability of that single endorsement. The map can also be toggled to show the availability of teacher preparation programs, ESA preparation programs, or admin preparation programs. Programs that operate a hybrid online/physical classroom model are considered physical programs in this map. This map does not include Alternative Route programs, which will be posted to this page soon.
