27J Schools is proud to recognize the first cohort of students to receive the Seal of Biliteracy. This seal is a Colorado diploma endorsement for biliteracy and encourages students to study world languages and gain literacy skills in multiple languages.

Eleven Prairie View High graduates and one Brighton High graduate received the Seal of Biliteracy designation and wore Kelly green cords to show they had earned the Seal of Biliteracy designation at their respective graduation ceremonies last week.

Congratulations to Prairie View High students: Avril Cruz, Yaneth Dominguez Caraveo, Natalie Diaz Loya, Jazmin Gomez, Camila Jimenez, Hadamarys Martinez Loya, Mariana Montalvan, Mariana Duque Montoya, Joana Quintana, Antonio Saucido-Alcantar Jr. and Viviana Soto. Brighton High student, Angel Dario Zamarron, also earned the Seal of Biliteracy.

On March 30, 2017, this Seal of Biliteracy was signed into law from Colorado Senate Bill 17-123. The Senate Bill established a Seal of Biliteracy for all students meeting rigorous standards, demonstrating bilingualism and biliteracy in both English and an additional world language. Students earning this seal have maintained a 3.0 or higher in English language arts classes, passed the SAT Evidence-based reading and writing exam with at least a score of 470, and passed an AP World Language exam with a score of 3 or higher.

Biliteracy is defined as the ability to read, write, speak and listen in two or more languages at a proficient level. This seal recognizes the value of language diversity. Students interested in working towards the Seal of Biliteracy, can fill out an online application at the following: https://tinyurl.com/27JsealofBiliteracy. For questions, please contact Instructional Specialist Lucia Gonzales at 303-655-2825 or lagonzales@SD27J.net.
