The SEEM Collaborative has been approved by the MA DESE to provide full and administrator SEI Endorsement Courses for cost. This is an ESE approved route to SEI Endorsement for all educators who have ELLs and their supervisors.
The SEI Administrator Endorsement course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice and to build administrators’ confidence and familiarity with procedures and strategies for supporting teachers in developing research-proven practices for working with ELLs.
