Massachusetts SEI ADMINISTRATOR Endorsement Course (RE-601)

This course is an approved pathway to Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement for:

  • Any administrator who evaluates core content educators working with English learners.
  • Administrators who failed their endorsement course the first time around.
  • Administrators who, for personal reasons, did not avail themselves of no-cost administrator courses when they were available.

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. 

This course is taught by instructors who have been trained and approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. See the ESE website for details about this requirement.


Participants who successfully complete the course will earn 15 professional development points (PDPs) or 1 graduate credit through Fitchburg State University. (A participant may use either a PDP certificate or a graduate transcript toward recertification, but NOT both.)
