The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a school, school district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and 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.
PAUSD has been working with the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) since the 2012 school year to award eligible high school graduates with the Seal of Biliteracy. The seal appears on the transcript of graduating seniors, as representation of accomplishment for gaining competency in two or more languages, and is viewed as an asset for college admission.
We are proud to announce that 199 Gunn students earned the Seal of Biliteracy this year. Of those, 28 received the honor for more than two languages, and 52 students were former English Learners (ELs). We are also proud to announce that 119 Paly students earned the distinction, including 10 students who received the honor for more than two languages, and 20 who were former EL students.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
