What is the Seal of Biliteracy?

A Seal of Biliteracy is a state and  local school district recognition  for graduating high school  students who can demonstrate a  high level of proficiency in at  least one world language and  English by high school graduation.  The State of Colorado adopted  the Seal of Biliteracy for High  School Diplomas on March 30,  2017, setting the minimum  criteria for districts to develop  their own process and criteria.

 

The Seal of Biliteracy is important because it will...

  • honor both the achievement of language acquisition and the heritage language, culture and experience students may already possess,

  • encourage students to pursue the acquisition of another language or languages, and

  • give future employers and post-secondary institutions definitive evidence of their language skills.
