Seal of Biliteracy

In the context of today’s globalized world, DCPS wants to recognize students who have exhibited a commitment to biliteracy and bilingualism. The DCPS Seal of Biliteracy is an award presented to DCPS juniors and seniors who have attained proficiency in two or more languages. Students who demonstrate cultural competency through an immersion experience in the target language, in addition to attaining proficiency in two or more languages, are eligible for The DCPS Seal of Biliteracy with Distinction.  Seniors who will receive proficiency exams scores after graduation should still apply; these students will be considered Candidates for the Seal of Biliteracy until scores are confirmed. 

The application deadline is May 1, 2017. For more information, please visit The DCPS Seal of Biliteracy website or contact Elizabeth Blesson at Elizabeth.blesson@dc.gov.
