Over 700 IUSD Seniors Awarded the Seal of Biliteracy

Seal of Biliteracy Recipients

Graduating California public high school students earn the biliteracy gold seal, which is affixed to their diplomas, for achieving proficiency in speaking, reading, writing, or signing in one or more languages in addition to English.

This year, 711 IUSD seniors have been awarded the State Seal of Biliteracy across 9 languages:

  • American Sign Language
  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Latin
  • Spanish

Nearly 25% percent of the 2024 graduating class has demonstrated their biliteracy or triliteracy. In fact, 20 IUSD seniors will receive two seals for demonstrating their triliteracy.

鶹Ƶ proud to recognize and celebrate our students and our World Language teachers for their teaching and proficiency in multiple languages. Congratulations!
