Seal Of Biliteracy and Commendation Toward Biliteracy


  • Township High School District 113 students have the opportunity to be recognized by the State of Illinois for earning proficiency in English and one additional language.  The Illinois Board of Education's Seal of Biliteracy program will confer official recognition on the diploma and transcripts of those students who qualify.  

    Two honors are available:

    1.  The Seal of Biliteracy:  is awarded to junior and senior students whose proficiency level is equivalent to the Intermediate High scale set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
    2. The Commendation Toward Biliteracy:  is awarded to junior and senior students whose proficiency level is equivalent to the Intermediate Low or Intermediate Mid scale set in a second language.

    Registration for the Seal of Biliteracy will open in March.
