About the Seal
The Seal of Biliteracy was an initiative started by Californians Together in 2008 to acknowledge and award hardworking bilingual and multilingual students. In 2011, it officially became legislation in California and now over 30 states throughout the nation have implemented a statewide Seal of Biliteracy. On May 30, 2015, Nevada became the 13th state to implement a legislated statewide Seal of Biliteracy. By achieving the Seal of Biliteracy, students demonstrate that they are able to speak, read, listen, and write in two or more languages at a high level of proficiency. The Clark County School District’s (CCSD) Curriculum and Professional Development Division, in collaboration with the Nevada Department of Education, identifies candidates for this award, verifies their language skills, and publicly recognizes students for exemplary achievement.
