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.

Please join us in congratulating Milsa Gutierrez, who earned this recognition by demonstrating her proficiency in English and Spanish!
