Retell Update 6/10/2013

Retell Update  - The attached document is our new interactive RETELL folder that members should use in determining if they must attain the Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement for their license.  The folder provides guidance about the SEI Endorsement and walks the educator through a series of questions to help understand what each is required to do and by when.
The educator should:
1.      Open the interactive PDF folder.
2.      Save it on their own computer in a file called SEI Endorsement.
3.      Complete the folder.
4.      Save the completed folder.
5.      Scan copies of documentation to support course completion, category training, etc.
