RETELL professional opportunity this summer

There will be a RETELL professional opportunity this summer. This provides a chance for New Bedford teachers to earn the SEI endorsement and to be amongst the first to do so. As the RETELL initiative does not become required until this fall, this summer is the last opportunity to use federal grant funds to support teachers attending. New Bedford Public Schools will thus provide funding for those secondary teachers who successfully complete the course through a $500 stipend. State and federal grant funding for RETELL participation after this summer would supplant services (as RETELL will then be required-see highlighted section below), making this a last opportunity to use grant funds to pay teachers for participation and successful completion.
Secondary teachers interested in this opportunity should contact Dr. Azar or Ms. Daly via email.
