WEST-E exemptions.

(1) Individuals who hold a certificate through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards are exempt from the WEST-E requirement if there is a direct equivalency between the endorsement sought and the national board certificate, or the individual has a second tier certificate from a state as approved by the professional educator standards board and published by the superintendent of public instruction. The equivalent National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and Washington endorsement table approved by the professional educator standards board may not be changed without prior professional educator standards board approval.
(2) Candidates applying for a Washington state residency or professional teaching certificate per WAC 181-79A-257 who have taken and passed equivalent content tests from other states as approved and published by the professional educator standards board, are exempt from the WEST-E requirement unless applying for a new endorsement.
