Track 1: Meeting the Needs of English Learners (ELs) for School Business Administrators [REGISTRATION CLOSED on April 27.]

Jennifer Fitzgerald, ELE Program Coordinator, SEEM Collaborative

Greg Zammuto, Director of Finance and Operations, SEEM Collaborative


In this online course, participants will learn about English Learners (ELs) and relevant federal, state, and district policies. The course will include readings, videos, and weekly discussion. Participants will be expected to produce a final product that reflects the integration of course content with their professional responsibilities. There will be 5 weeks of content, with some additional time built in for completion of the final product. Participants are able to log in weekly at their convenience.


New weeks begin on the following dates: 4/27, 5/4, 5/10, 5/18, 5/26 (day after Memorial Day), and 6/8 (final project due).

15 PDPs in SEI/ESL will be offered for successful completion of the course and will be granted by SEEM Collaborative, not MASBO. This course does not lead to or provide the SEI Administrator Endorsement.



Track 2: Cultural Proficiency  [Cancelled]

Dr. Kalise Wornum, Director of Educational Equity, The Public Schools of Brookline


An understanding theory is only useful if educators understand how the theory plays out in leadership. Leaders will also understand the connection between theory and everyday practice. Participants will be exposed to proven strategies to counter the negative effects of micro-aggressions, and or implicit bias. Most importantly, participants will have an opportunity to raise questions and discuss challenges in real time.



TRACK 3: These are two, independent, half-day sessions. You may attend both sessions for the full-day rate OR attend one session for the half-day rate.

Mary Ellen Normen, Deputy Superintendent for Administration and Finance, The Public Schools of Brookline


8:30-12:00 Policy From Cradle to Grave: Action Steps for Successful Policy Management  [Cancelled]

Policy review is an ongoing process and one in which School Committees are accountable for establishing and completing. Learn how to best keep your district's Financial Policies in order, up to date, and dynamic to the changing of the times, technologies, and statutory or regulatory requirements.  Bring with you a policy or two that you would like to have an action plan for making a recommendation to change or update.  Suggestions are Student Activities; Student, Fees, Fines, and Charges; or Authorized Signature Policy.


1:00-4:30 (non) Negotiate Success  [Cancelled]

Learn tips and tools from a veteran School Business Administrator on establishing your own professional/career non-negotiables; timing and proper updates to LinkedIn/Resumes/Cover Letters; properly preparing for the application process and an interview; and most importantly how to negotiate a quality employment contract with a future boss (school committee and/or superintendent).  Attendees will leave the session with a plan and strategy for approaching their next School Business Administrator application, interview, and contract negotiation process.
