Students: Register for 2023 Seal of Biliteracy Ceremony

SCOE to Recognize Competency in World Languages

California State Seal of Biliteracy for Eligible Graduating High School Seniors

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) will host its annual recognition ceremony for State Seal of Biliteracy recipients on Wednesday, May 3, 2023. The Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to seniors who have demonstrated English competency, plus competency in another language by meeting specific criteria. Students who participate in the program report that they have gained a greater appreciation for other cultures, developing a deeper understanding of the world around them. Seal of Biliteracy eligibility details are available online.

SCOE collaborates with more than 20 school districts and independent charter schools to honor high school seniors who earn the distinction each year. The recognition ceremony is attended by school administrators, teachers, parents, and members of the community—all coming together to celebrate the outstanding students who have demonstrated proficiency in English, plus one or more world languages.
