Present Duties

The Teacher Standards and Practices Commission was established in 1965 and made an independent agency in 1973. It is one of 11 independent educator licensure boards in the nation. The commission accredits all educator licensure preparation programs in colleges and universities who wish to do business in Oregon; licenses teachers, administrators, school counselors and school psychologists in Oregon public and charter schools; certifies school nurses; and takes disciplinary actions against licensees, applicants and student teachers when found to have been convicted of crimes or engaged in misconduct by violating ethical standards of professional practices.
