Students at MHS Attain NJ Seal of Biliteracy

Students at MHS Attain NJ Seal of Biliteracy
Posted on 03/16/2021
Nineteen Montclair High School seniors were honored at the Board of Education meeting on Mon., March 15 for having attained the New Jersey Seal of Biliteracy across seven languages: Albanian, French, Italian, Latin, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. This was the Montclair Public Schools’ third year participating in the program. By language, a total of 24 Seals were earned. Three students attained the Seal in two languages and one student attained the Seal in three languages. In addition, three former English Language Learners attained the Seal.

The Seal of Biliteracy is an official recognition from the New Jersey Department of Education. The Seal is a nationally recognized credential that attests to each recipient’s unwavering dedication to proficiency and global citizenship. The Seal affirms that these seniors are prepared to utilize the language that they have acquired as they commence their post-secondary pursuits.

The following language assessments were used to provide evidence of target language proficiency of Intermediate Mid or higher: Avant STAMP 4S, ACTFL ALIRA, and ACTFL OPI/WPT. Please note that due to the altered format of the remote 2020 Advanced Placement language and culture exams, this assessment could not be utilized for this year's administration of the Seal. Both the insignia and Seal will appear on each student's transcript.

Senior recipients of the Seal of Biliteracy will receive an official certificate from the NJDOE, as well as a medallion to wear at graduation at a district level event later this school year.
