The Professional Standards and Practices Commission’s (PSPC) proposed changes to the Code of Professional Practice and Conduct for Educators under 22 PA Code, Chapter 235, that were published in the August 21, 2021 issue of the Pennsylvania Bulletin and are now final.  PSBA supports the PSPC’s work and believes the revisions more appropriately align the code with changes in the law and current practice. The association was actively involved in the process to amend the code and many of our recommendations were incorporated into the final version. As revised, the modernized code sets expectations by more fully addressing the ethical responsibilities of teachers, particularly relating to relationships with colleagues, student-teacher relationships, issues related to the use of technology, and commitment to the profession.
