SEI Endorsement Frequently Asked Questions

Fall 2020 courses: Each year, the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education updates the SEI courses over the summer.  Once this process is completed, the Department must approve course schedules for the school year. MATSOL will be offering the courses in the fall  and spring semesters, posting the schedule as soon as it is approved by DESE.  Please check back later this summer for more information or complete the Wait List - SEI Endorsement Courses 2020-2021 to be notified when courses are announced for the fall. 

Approved as an Extending the Learning Course: Extending the Learning courses have been developed by MATSOL, and reviewed and approved by the ESE Office of English Language Acquisition and Academic Achievement. Successful completion of these offerings will earn the participating educator PDPs for recertification.
