(2) An Emergency School Social Worker License may be issued when a school district demonstrates extenuating circumstances that merit the issuance of the license in order to protect the district's programs or students.

(5) The Emergency School Social Worker License will be issued solely at the discretion of the Executive Director for any length of time deemed necessary to protect the district's programs or students. The Executive Director may consider the following:
