PEBC Position Paper- Teacher Licensure

PEBC’s mission has always been rooted in the belief that every child deserves access to excellent educators. We believe this is achieved through teachers abilities to obtain educator licensure. We pledge to continue to offer residency that leads to licensure to produce committed, prepared and effective educators across Colorado.
