Massachusetts SEI TEACHER Endorsement Course (RE-600)

MATSOL courses are taught by highly qualified and experienced instructors who have taught English Learners in Massachusetts public schools and been trained and approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. MATSOL offers this course as part of our mission to promote equity and excellence for English Learners.

The SEI Teacher Endorsement Course is an approved pathway to Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement for:

  • Any educator seeking SEI Endorsement after 2016
  • Non-core educators (art, music, world language, P.E., etc.)
  • Individuals who failed their Endorsement course the first time around
  • Educators who, for personal reasons, did not avail themselves of no-cost courses when they were available
  • Parochial and private school educators

 Information about the SEI Endorsement requirement can be found on the DESE website: http://www.doe.mass.edu/licensure/endorsements/sei.html
