    Program Review

    All educator preparation programs leading to Washington certification must be approved by the Professional Educator Standards Board according to WAC Chapter 181.78A. Program review is on a 5-year cycle, 7 years if conducted as a concurrent visit with NCATE (CAEP).

    Program Approval Standards are reviewed by a stakeholder group every 5 years, then approved by the Professional Educator Standards Board.

    Program Review Rubrics are the instruments the site teams use to review the evidence provided by the program, also reviewed every 5 years.

    PESB Moodle Site:  A self-contained planning site with templates and tools becomes available to faculty and staff in the year prior to the visit.

            2013 site visits in progress go to Moodle 1

            2014 and beyond site visits go to Moodle 2

    PESB Liaison is named to guide the program through the site review process and may position technical support as needed.

    Following full approval, reapproval is subject to PESB decision after reviewing the reports and recommendations submitted by the program review team's site visit. The Board determines which of the Program Approval Options will be conferred to the program.

    NOTE: The university certification officer is the party responsible for managing all certification requirements. Site review and program approval are separate processes from certification file reviews
