High school students receive the Seal of Biliteracy 

The Seal of Biliteracy recognizes high school graduates who have demonstrated high levels of proficiency (reading, writing, and speaking) in one or more languages in addition to high levels of proficiency in English.

Today, we are honoring half the group of those students who earned the Seal and will be honoring the remaining students at the next board meeting.
Would Decatur High School and Thomas Jefferson High School scholars please come forward to be recognized?

The number of students that are biliterate is a key measure of progress in Goal 4 of our strategic plan, content area competence, and we are proud of each of you for your outstanding achievement!
