Welcome

Welcome

​The State Board works closely with the Department of Education, state policymakers, and educators to review, develop and adopt regulations that govern significant components of both basic and higher education in the Commonwealth. From approving state academic standards for Pennsylvania’s students to setting policies that help ensure our educators are effective in delivering related instruction, the Board places considerable emphasis on stakeholder involvement in its policymaking. In redesigning this site, we’ve strived for even greater transparency to connect you with our deliberations.
