The Professional Standards Council was established by a vote of the State Board of Education on January 17, 1991. The Council was comprised of 18 members. Its role was to review and evaluate certification standards and requirements. The Council served in an advisory capacity to the Department of Public Instruction on matters regarding the certification of teachers and administrators. The Council would propose policy, rules and regulations concerning certification, deal with the issue or reciprocity, recruitment and appraisal.

The Professional Standards Council was reauthorized by the State Board of Education for a period of four years on November 16, 1995.
Due to changes in the structure of the State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction, which became the Department of Education during this time, the Standards Council was not reauthorized following the 1995 vote, and ceased to exist effective at the end of 1999.
