Originally established in 1966 as an arms-length board sponsored by the BJE, the purpose of the Board of License and Review was to review and clarify the licensing, assessment of credentials, and salary categories of teachers in the Toronto area. The board could also periodically recommend to the BJE new regulations to improve the standards for Jewish education in Toronto. The board's membership consisted of the dean of the Midrasha, the president of the Midrasha and/or the president of the BJE, the chairman of the Jewish Teachers' Alliance, and the chairman of the Principals Council.
The need for the board arose due to dissatisfaction with the system in use since 1949 for appealing the BJE's categorization of teachers. In the previous system, a teacher's appeal was heard by a joint committee of the bureau and the Teachers' Alliance. If this committee could not reach an agreement, the appeal would be decided by the Personnel Committee of the bureau.
The need for an arms-length board to hear classification appeals diminished during the 1970s, as standards for the training of teachers became better established and the categorization of teachers was more explicitly defined through the collective agreements between the BJE and the teachers' bargaining units. By the 1980s, the Board of License and Review had become a standing committee of the BJE consisting of professionals and laypeople. Members of the Board of License and Review are appointed by the chairman of the BJE and its decisions are reported periodically to the BJE.
