maaps is pleased to announce a new partnership with Framingham State University (FSU) to provide on-line courses which can be used in the following ways towards educator licensure:

  • Assist teachers currently on a waiver in meeting the Competency/Continuous Progress Requirements of the license for moderate disabilities. Each 4-week course can be used as 1 point of continuous progress (It does NOT apply to, severe disabilities, deaf and hard of hearing, and visually impaired educator licensure)
  • Assist teachers who are trying to advance their educator licenses through the 12 Credit Option.
  • Earn 5 PDPs/1 graduate credit towards the special education content requirement to renew a professional educator license.

Courses through FSU will be instructor-led online and have been verified to meet the licensure requirements of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE). Upon successful completion of a course, each student will receive a certificate and a letter to submit to the ESE licensure office.

For questions related to FSU or to be placed on the waiting list, please contact Ginnie Waldron at maaps at 781-245-1220 x207.

For questions related to ESE licensure, please contact Theresa Melito-Conners, by email at or 781-909-5308
