Q. Under the certified tutor statute, do I have to be certified at the high school level to teach high school subjects?
A. According to §22.1-254 (A), in order to teach under the certified tutor statute, the law requires a person to show that he or she is a “tutor or teacher of qualifications prescribed by the Board of Education and approved by the division superintendent.” The statute does not require certification in a particular academic area. The superintendent verifies that
the teaching credential is current.
