Due to the ongoing public health safety concerns from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are making adjustments to our May in-person gatherings. 

Board meetings

To remain compliant with our state’s social distancing guidelines, our May meetings for the Professional Educator Standards Board and Paraeducator Board, originally scheduled to take place in Richland on May 20-22, will now be held virtually. The virtual meeting will still be accessible to the public. Due to technology limitations, we will only be accepting written public comment. Learn how to submit public comment.

Strategic plan community engagement forums

At this time, the community engagement forums that were scheduled to take place in Richland on May 20-21 have been cancelled. Our staff are working diligently to identify opportunities to host future forums in July and September. As details of new forums are finalized, we will be sure to notify you. While these in person opportunities have been put on hold, we encourage you to engage with our 2021-25 strategic plan by completing our online, public survey. Learn more.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will publish any additional changes or guidance as new developments occur. As always, we appreciate your patience, partnership, and support. Visit our resources page on COVID-19.
