Transition Updates


The Board of Teaching is no longer an agency.

The Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) begins and takes over the work of the Board of Teaching and the Educator Licensing Division at the Department of Education. (All staff within these departments move to the new board.) See Board Staff.

PELSB will meet on January 2, 2018 to make a few, official actions.  The first regular meeting will take place on January 12, 2018.
