Culver City Unified School District Biliteracy Awards
Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, The State of California introduced the “Pathway to Biliteracy” and the “Seal of Biliteracy” awards. These awards are given as recognition for students who have demonstrated achievement in two or more languages.
Pathway to Biliteracy Awards (for 5th and 8th grade students):
Pathway to Biliteracy awards honor students who, by the end of 5th and/or 8th grade, have demonstrated a commitment to becoming biliterate and who have reached a certain degree of proficiency in both English and another language.
Seal of Biliteracy Award (for graduating 12th grade students)
The Seal of Biliteracy will be awarded to 12th grade students at graduation. This award is a seal placed on the student’s diploma and noted in the transcript. Recipients will also be awarded an honor medallion to wear during graduation ceremonies. To receive this recognition, students must meet the established criteria detailed in the application. Students must submit an application to the CCHS Seal of Biliteracy Coordinator, Dr. Kelli Tarvyd ([email protected]).
