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.
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 Professional Educator Advisory Boards. In order to facilitate our appointment process, WEA:
- does not 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.
Please send all requests for appointments via email directly to Christina Martinez at WEA (email@example.com), copying Kim Mead (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Stephen Miller (email@example.com) in the cc field.
It is no longer necessary to send a request letter in the mail.
