FORTY-SIX NEW LON­DON SE­NIORS TO BE REC­OG­NIZED FOR BILITERACY IN­TER­AC­TIVE AR­CADE COM­ING TO MO­HE­GAN SUN EXPO CEN­TER

The Day - - DAILY BRIEFING -

New Lon­don Pub­lic Schools on Monday will award with the Seal of Biliteracy to 46 grad­u­at­ing se­niors who have demon­strated pro­fi­ciency in English and at least one other lan­guage.

The Seal of Biliteracy is placed on the high school diplo­mas and tran­scripts of grad­u­ates, a ref­er­ence to a stu­dent’s abil­ity to read and write in those lan­guages at a high level of pro­fi­ciency, in ad­di­tion to their speak­ing and lis­ten­ing skills.

The Seal of Biliteracy was signed into law by the gov­er­nor in June 2017 and Con­necti­cut is one of ap­prox­i­mately 30 states cur­rently award­ing this spe­cial des­ig­na­tion.

The Seal of Biliteracy will be awarded to stu­dents from New Lon­don High School and the Science and Tech­nol­ogy Mag­net High School of South­east­ern Con­necti­cut in one of three lan­guages: Span­ish, French and Ta­ga­log, which is spo­ken in the Philip­pines.

Stu­dents will be for­mally rec­og­nized at Class Day awards
