many independent and 21st century learning environments do not require educators to
hold traditional status teaching certification. In such instances, the School will
make a case-by-case determination as to whether the educator's qualifications are
sufficiently equivalent to a traditional teaching certificate and/or whether the educator
has the background necessary to ensure successful completion of the program.
