SEI Administrator Endorsement Course (Open Enrollment)

Professional Development

Administrator Endorsement


The purpose of this course is to prepare Massachusetts school administrators with the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective reviewers and instructional leaders of educators who teach English language learners so that our growing population of English Language Learners (ELLs) can access curriculum, achieve academic success, and contribute their multilingual and multicultural resources as participants and future leaders in the 21st century global economy.

The course schedule accommodates 5 face-to-face sessions, online work between sessions, and three make-up sessions. Because the Admin course is only 5 sessions long, there are no excused absences. If a participant misses a session, the participant should contact CES immediately in order to arrange to attend the same session at another location. Should a participant miss a session and not make up the session, the participant may fail the course.


K-12 Massachusetts school administrators seeking the mandatory SEI Endorsement to their license.


Participants who complete the course will be eligible for 22.5 PDPs.
