Committees

The work of the SPTRB is led by the Board of Directors and is supported by various committees. SPTRB committees are tasked with a variety of functions and include the involvement of registered teachers, representatives from the education sector in Saskatchewan, and members of the public. The important functions carried out by the SPTRB’s committees would not be possible without the dedication of our Board of Directors and volunteers contributing to the profession with their time and expertise. 

The Appointments Committee is established for the purposes of: reviewing applications for and making recommendations to the Board of Directors for appointments to the Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) or Discipline Committee (DC) Panel, appointing members of the PCC Panel to a PCC and appointing members of the DC Panel to a Discipline Committee.
