Seal of Biliteracy

The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB)

The NYSSB recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English. The intent of the NYSSB is to encourage the study of languages; identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers; provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission; prepare students with twenty-first century skills; recognize the value of foreign and native language instruction in schools; and affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.

The purpose of this collaborative working group is to discuss best practices, share resources and effectively plan for the implementation of the NYS Seal of Biliteracy in schools and districts across the region.
