What is Seal of Biliteracy?
The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a school, district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. (source)
The Seal of Biliteracy Program:
- 49 States and Washington DC supporting the seal of biliteracy program through legislation
- About 15 States have already approved assessments for Tamil language. Many States do not have approved assessments for Tamil, however local school districts may have approved some form of evaluation (Alternate Evaluation Method)
The Seal of Biliteracy – How it works:
- Evaluates high school students in 4 domains – Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing
- Not necessarily a part of school curriculum
- Embossed in student’s transcript
