Professional Education Advisory Boards
WFIS is the appointing agency for committees that include private school representation in the development of educational policy.
Professional Education Advisory Boards (PEABs) cooperatively participate on the development, implementation and revision of college and university teaching and education programs in WA State. PEABs typically meet three times per year to advise colleges and universities on program designs, assessments and candidate admissions; as well as review performance data, follow-up studies and placement records to make recommendations for program improvements.
PEABs are unique to the state of Washington, serving to benefit degree and certification programs as discriminating advisors and educational advocates to ensure our state’s teacher preparation programs have their standards reviewed at least once every five years.
WFIS also appoints representatives to the Admissions and Professional Conduct Committee (APCAC), the WA Association of Secondary School Principals (WASSP), the Early Learning Advisory Committee (ELAC), the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA), and committees on School Rules Revision and School Safety.
