Seal of Biliteracy

The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by the state of Rhode Island in recognition of students who have attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. Our vision is to help students recognize the value of their academic success and see the tangible benefits of being bilingual.

Read our Presentation from the RIFLA 2016 Fall Conference. Click this title: Implementing the Seal of Biliteracy in your school and district.

Stay tuned! Now that Governor Raimondo has signed the Seal of Biliteracy into law, the Commissioner and Council on Elementary and Secondary Education will be approving regulations. Schools may now award district-level seals on high school diplomas. Tell your principal! Until state regulations are set, we strongly recommend that districts follow the criteria set by the Rhode Island Seal of Biliteracy Working Group.
