Office of English Language Learners
  • The RETELL initiative (Rethinking Equity in the Teaching of English Language Learners) represents a commitment to address the persistent gap in academic proficiency experienced by ELL students. At the heart of this initiative are training and licensure required for Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement, which core academic teachers of ELLs and principals/assistant principals and supervisors/directors who supervise or evaluate such teachers must obtain.
    Registration is open now on*! 4 Full teacher (120 seats) and 1 (30 seats) are open for core academic teachers and administrators who require the SEI endorsement in order to services the English Learner population at their school. Approval will be on a first come first served basis.  
  • *MyLearningPlan is being used as a means to register BPS participants, not to generate certificates of completions. Certificates of attendance will be issued through Blackboard and the SEI Endorsement issued by MADESE.
