About MATSOL Courses

MATSOL courses have been developed by expert educators, grounded in their experience teaching in Massachusetts schools, and informed by feedback from educators and school districts across the Commonwealth. Extending the Learning Courses have been 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


Members of the MATSOL PD Team are all highly qualified and experienced instructors who have been educators of English learners in Massachusetts public schools. SEI Endorsement instructors are all approved by Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
