Seal of Biliteracy
Dear Parent of CHS juniors and/or seniors,
If your child is fluent in two or more languages, he/she is eligible to be tested for the Seal of Biliteracy. The Seal of Biliteracy opens up a sea of opportunities for those pursuing higher education or joining the workforce. As the world becomes increasingly more global, the need for employees with bilingual and multilingual skills is also increasing.
In order for students to be eligible to receive the Seal of Biliteracy, they must meet certain criteria. If your child can demonstrate evidence of proficiency in two languages, a Seal of Biliteracy insignia will be noted on their transcript and they will receive a certificate from the State of New Jersey. If you are interested in having your child participate in this program and be tested to determine his/her eligibility, please contact me, email@example.com, before October 30.
