State of Utah's Seal of Biliteracy in
Tooele County School District
Seal of Biliteracy

The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given to graduating seniors in the United States who have reached oral and written proficiency in at least two languages. In Utah, students must show evidence of an Intermediate-Mid level of proficiency in each language. According to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency scale, Intermediate-Mid speakers can create with language to convey personal meaning in single sentences & strings of sentences.

 

The Seal of Biliteracy serves as a celebration of bilingualism and biliteracy, an honor for the skills our students attain, and evidence of skills for future employers and college admission offices.  Students may have the seal included on their transcripts, as well as their resumes.
