Illinois State Seal of Biliteracy

OUR PROGRAM IN 60 SECONDS

OVERVIEW:

The Seal of Biliteracy is open to ALL students in ANY language!

West Aurora School District 129 has established a program to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in one or more languages in addition to English.  Two honors are available: the Seal of Biliteracy and the Commendation toward Biliteracy.  

The Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to those whose proficiency level in English and a second language is equivalent to Intermediate-High or above, as determined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. The Commendation toward Biliteracy is awarded to students whose English and/or second language proficiency level is rated at Intermediate-Low or Intermediate-Mid. Language proficiency testing will be offered with an associated cost.

A student meeting the requirements for the Seal of Biliteracy or Commendation toward Biliteracy will receive this designation on his/her transcript as well as the diploma upon graduation.
