An approved educator preparation program must establish and maintain a Professional Education Advisory Board (PEAB). The Board participates in and cooperates with the program on decisions related to the development, implementation, and revision of each preparation program – i.e., teacher, administrator, school counselor, and school psychologist.
State rules require that each PEAB include representatives from the professional associations for each program. For specific composition requirements, see the WAC language.
Should a program’s PEAB need a representative from one of the professional associations, contact the appropriate representative from the list below.
Note: See “Process for WEA PEAB appointments” drop down below for specific instructions.
Process for WEA PEAB appointments
If you are seeking to fill teacher vacancies on any PEAB, please follow the process below for securing appointments from the Washington Education Association (WEA).
The WEA annually appoints a large number of educators to serve on PEABs. Please submit all requests for appointments via WEA’s PEAB survey. In order to facilitate our appointment process, WEA:
- does take nominations from colleges and universities with recommended appointees
- will try to find appointees who meet demographics requested by colleges/universities (e.g. specific geographic region, school district, content area or level)
- will seek to identify appointees who live within a reasonable driving distance from the college / university
If you have any questions on the WEA PEAB appointment process or the survey please contact Christina Martinez at WEA (firstname.lastname@example.org), copying Janie White (email@example.com) in the cc field.
