Professional Standards Board Subcommittes

In addition to its own Executive Committee, the Standards Board governs and appoints members to three subcommittees. These subcommittees are the Regulations Committee, the Evaluation Review Committee, and the Policies and Procedures Committee.
 
Regulations Committee
The  Regulations Committee is composed of ten members appointed by the Standards Board. The Committee receives input from the field, and presents recommendations on  teacher education and licensure regulations to the State Board of Education.

Evaluation Review Committee
The Evaluation Review Committee (ERC) is composed of 13 members, four each representing higher education, school administrators, and teachers and one at-large member. The ERC reviews and evaluates on-sites and program reviews  to determine accreditation status of the Kansas teacher education institutions and the teacher education programs which they offer. The committee conducts hearings upon the request of a teacher education institution to appeal the ERC's recommendation regarding the unit or program accreditation status. The ERC submits its final recommendations regarding accreditation and program approval status to the Kansas State Board of Education.

Policies and Procedures Committee
The Policies and Procedures Committee is composed of seven members appointed by the Standards Board: two each representing higher education, school administrators and teachers, and one member at-large. The Policies and Procedures Committee has the responsibility to develop all policies and procedures which relate to the evaluation of teacher education units and the teacher education programs which they offer.
