Addressing Educational Equity is a course covering achievement, fairness, and opportunity in education with regards to currently and historically undersupported groups: students of color, low-income students, and students with disabilities, among others. Topics covered include educator effectiveness and preparedness, inclusive practice, oppression, and cultural competence. Participants will complete a project in their districts addressing inequity within their schools, and will be supported in using equitable access data and analytic tools, the DESE resources relating to equity gaps, and outside readings to implement their findings. This 45 hour institute will consist of 10 sessions. Three 8-hour sessions will be delivered in person. Seven 3-hour sessions will be delivered online. Homework will be required, but included within class time. 67.5 PDPs will be awarded to participants upon completion of this course. Three graduate credits are available through Fitchburg State University at an additional cost of $295. Graduate credit registration and payment occurs at the first section meeting, and payment can be made by credit card or check at that time. More

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 supervisors/administrators.

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 English Learners (ELs). Throughout the course, effective methods of examining data, observing teaching practice, and providing support to teachers will be explored.

Assignments are designed to engage administrators in conducting research within their school buildings. Assignments include careful analysis of school, district, and state data pertaining to English Language Learners, as well as data collection on the classroom practice of SEI teachers. Administrators will learn about the elements to look for in teachers’ lesson plans, as well as the SEI strategies to look for during classroom observations. Throughout, administrators will be asked to reflect upon the implications of the course material and their findings on their responsibilities as school leaders.
Participants will receive 22.5 PDPs for successful completion of the course.  

Please be aware that the attendance policy is very strict and participants are not allowed any absences from the Administrator course. 

Participant manuals may be purchased for $20.
