Qualifications of this Organization (licensure, trademark, etc.):

The Public Education & Business Coalition (PEBC) is a nonprofit partnership of Colorado education and business leaders dedicated to developing the intellectual and scholarly practices of educators across the continuum of their professional lives so our schools are worthy of our students. In addition, we provide current news in the education arena to foster and provoke informed policy discussions and decision making in our state.

PEBC has grown from a small, local education fund to an organization with an unrivaled reputation for its professional development model, its publications, and the expertise of its staff. PEBC has worked with more than 17,000 principals and teachers in K-12 education, impacting over 1,000 schools, and one million students.

The Boettcher Teachers Program and EdNews Colorado are network partners of PEBC.

Qualifications of Instructors/ Staff that Provide Services:

PEBC has 39 nationally-recognized staff developers with diverse backgrounds in education ranging from early childhood education to school and district leadership coaching.


PEBC customizes its services to meet the needs of individual schools and districts. Please contact us so that we can develop a plan to meet your specific needs.

Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

PEBC staff developers work in collaboration with teachers and school administrators to create comprehensive, site-specific professional development offerings to help meet their school improvement goals. This work begins by establishing an onsite leadership team charged with managing and nurturing the long-term change efforts. It continues with whole-staff professional development via study groups, demonstration lesson and lesson analysis, orientation lab experiences, curriculum design and planning. Individual teacher collaboration and small group collaboration is also an important part of this school-based work.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

PEBC contracts with the University of Colorado-Denver to conduct external evaluation of its professional development services.

The Boettcher Teachers Program, launched in 2003, was one of the first of three in the nation to focus on a residency model with a five-year service contract to develop teachers for high-needs schools and districts. To date, the program boasts a teacher retention rate of 96% after six years; and statistically significant increases in student achievement data demonstrate the validity of this model in growing a highly effective teacher workforce for our highest needs schools.
