The Iowa Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a district to recognize students who have attained proficiency in two or more languages, one of which is English, by high school graduation. Being able to know and use more than one language is a critical skill for the 21st century. The Seal of Biliteracy serves as recognition for attainment of multilingual skills, provides evidence of skills important to future employers and higher education and demonstrates a readiness of students to be college, career, and community contributors in the local, national, and global societies
This year ADM had 10 students earn the Iowa Seal of Biliteracy by demonstrating proficiency in English on the ISASP assessment and Spanish with a score of 5 or higher in each area of the STAMP Test. Join us in congratulating ADM students Jackson Banwart, Averi Brady, Mindy Deitrick, David Finnegan, Gabriel Heitz, Holly Mattes, Katie Ponce, Quinton Kimrey, Monica Thomas, Olivia Stout.
