03/14/2015 Three local school districts are drafting a seal of biliteracy program. http://t.co/Z8pFCtAj4X
08/28/2015 Denver Public Schools, Adams 14 and Eagle County Schools presented the Seal of Biliteracy to their School Boards in the Spring of 2015. Support from all three School Boars was overwhelmingly positive, and these districts will be implementing the Seal of Biliteracy starting during the 2015-2016 school year. As Colorado is a state of local control (meaning each school district creates their own graduation requirements, etc.), these three districts are hoping that all other school districts in Colorado will follow suit to honor ALL students throughout the state who have demonstrated proficiency in two or more languages.
