Engaging Policy & Innovation

Innovation Grants

Grant programs are aimed at supporting the innovative efforts of districts and educational institutions in their work to support Washington state’s children in public education. The Educator Pathways program is always striving to promote unique strategies statewide that address the teacher shortage and promote diversity in the education profession.

Work Groups

PESB facilitates work groups, gathering dozens of community leaders together with the shared vision of creating a better landscape for Washington students. Community members, school principals, teachers, paraeducators, and higher education stakeholders are all at the table to discuss the most pressing issues in the sphere of educator preparation, retention, and diversity.


PESB staff have compiled dozens of reports, articles and presentations designed to inform education stakeholders statewide and provide a comprehensive database for the work of the Educator Pathways program.
