Opportunities to engage with PESB’s strategic plan

April 8, 2020


Our next step in the strategic planning process is to engage our partners, stakeholders, and community members. The objective of these engagement opportunities is to collect your feedback on the plan’s draft components, help inform our agency’s focus areas, identify barriers, and guide future policy work as it relates to the educator career continuum. It is important we hear from, and engage with you about how we can strengthen Washington’s educator workforce, and better support student success. Your experiences and unique perspective will help us to identify opportunities for improvement, where gaps may exist, and where clarity is needed.

How can I participate?

Take our survey

Our online, public survey is now available. The survey should take about 7-10 minutes. Your responses will be kept confidential and will be presented anonymously and in aggregate. Please complete the survey by Monday, June 1, 2020. We welcome you to share this survey with others you think would be interested. Take the survey.

Invite us to engage with your organization

While in-person meetings have been restricted in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are identifying new opportunities to engage with you and your organization. One such opportunity would be through a virtual meeting, where we can present on our current strategic planning efforts, and would invite dialogue and feedback to follow. If you are interested, please reach out to us at pesb@k12.wa.us.

Background information

In July 2019, members from both the Paraeducator Board and the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) began working on their 2021-25 strategic plan. Our four year strategic plan helps us determine long-term goals, actions we will take to reach them, and key performance indicators to help monitor progress. A draft outline of the plan, including a new mission, vision, value words, guiding principles, and educator career continuum goals and definitions can be seen on our website.
