Director Qualifications

Just for clarification, is VDOE going to require that Montessori Directors hold Montessori  certification? Most qualified directors already hold a B.A./B.S and some hold a Master's degree as well which certainly qualifies them to direct an early childhood program  when accompanied  by Early Childhood administration  experience. It would  be difficult to ask a Director to go back to school for several months if they haven't already obtained a certificate and currently  don't  work in the classroom setting.
