Our agency has set several performance indicators to track the progress of its fourth goal: that all P-12 students have courses and support services provided by properly credentialed educators. To learn more about goal 4, and the other goals, please read PESB’s mission, vision, and strategic plan.
Decrease the percent of P-12 students assigned to out of endorsement teachers by 4% by 2020.
This and other data displays are hosted on the district workforce data page. PESB annually publishes the assignment matches between courses and matched teacher endorsements. Teachers of courses without a matching endorsement are considered out of endorsement or out of assignment.
First credential teacher counts by preparation program provider
First credential teacher completers are beginning teacher candidates who have finished their preparation program. They could be from either a traditional route program or one of Washington’s four alternative routes to teacher certification.
Endorsements recommended by preparation program provider
PESB encourages preparation program providers to work with state and local agencies to address specific endorsement or educator role shortages.
Why could this data look different than 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.
