教育工作者/校长的资格要求因州而异. 如果申请人所在的州没有提供直接的执照获取途径,则需要先获得亚利桑那州的认证, prior to seeking licensure in their home state as an out-of-state prepared teacher/principal candidate. Arizona certification requires candidates to pass all Arizona-specific licensure requirements, 包括任何亚利桑那州特有的考试(如果是亚利桑那州教育部认可的,也可以是本州的同等考试).)在获得亚利桑那州教师/校长证书后, candidates can then apply for licensure in their home state and may be required to complete additional testing and/or requirements at additional cost. Program requirements may change based upon your home state’s agency licensure requirements. 请访问教师执照页面 or the principal licensure page for state specific requirements prior to reaching out to your state agency.
