We believe that every student can learn and succeed

Across the state at SEIS sites, our commitment to students’ social, emotional, and academic success at the forefront of our work.

Our approach to this work also depends on strong relationships. With host agencies and programs, sending districts, DESE, and DYS General Education teachers and leaders, we’ve cultivated these relationships for the 13 years we have held this contract.

We work to provide leadership and strong support for our teachers

We bring strong knowledge of and experience with special education programming, laws and regulations; and we care deeply about the work and each other. The program’s approach also focuses on clear goals for educator development and ways of measuring our progress, a strong supervision model, and extensive PD opportunities. We also work to provide significant technology support with Chromebooks; fast response tech support delivered statewide, and quick implementation on needed changes and enhancements.
