Professional Standards Commission Logo

The Professional Standards Commission (PSC) was established as an advisory commission to the State Board of Education by the Idaho State Legislature in 1972.

The PSC makes recommendations to the State Board of Education and renders decisions that provide Idaho with competent, qualified, ethical educators dedicated to rigorous standards, preK-12 student achievement, and improved professional practice.

The PSC will continue to provide leadership for professional standards and accountability in Idaho’s schools. We will handle that responsibility with respect and in a timely fashion. We will nurture positive relationships and collaborative efforts with a wide range of stakeholders. We will be a powerful voice advocating on behalf of Idaho’s children.
