On Thursday, January 13, 2022, the PA State Board of Education held its bi-monthly meeting. Action items included a petition by the State Board of Career and Technical Education to the U.S. Department of Education seeking recognition of the Pennsylvania State Board of Career and Technical Education as a Public Postsecondary Career and Technical Education Accrediting Authority. Following that action, the PA State Board of Education approved final-form amendments to Chapter 4 (Academic Standards and Assessments) as well as the Annual Report to the Governor and the General Assembly.
Prior to adjourning, the Board bid a fond farewell to Dr. Jonathan Peri, who is retiring as Chairman of the Council of Higher Education.
The next state board meeting will be held on March 16-17, 2022.
