The NASDTEC Interstate Agreement is a statement by Vermont outlining which other states' educator certificates will be accepted. Specifically the agreement outlines which particular types of educator certificates (teachers, administrators, service personnel, or career/technical), and which particular styles of certifications (titles, fields, etc.) will be accepted.
The Agency of Education may review the credentials of applicants from other states/countries under the following conditions: Educators (Teachers & Administrators) who hold a current professional license from outside of Vermont will be given a Level I license (3 year) in the endorsement area delineated on their out-of- state license or a comparable VT endorsement when the following have been met:
- Submission of current professional license
- Submission of Disclosure Statement and explanation of disclosures as needed
- Submission of Oath notarized
- Submission of a Statement of Good Standing
- Successful completion of Vermont Registry checks
- Success completion of Criminal Record Check
- Submission of official transcript - The out of state applicant must possess the same degree (MA, BA/BS) as is required for the VT endorsement
- Other documentation as required by VT endorsement (e.g. Physical Education requires current CPR with AED certification and First Aid)
- Payment of Fees
Please be advised that not all states have signed agreements.
