seal of biliteracy studentsEarning the Seal of Biliteracy requires meeting criteria in three areas. This work generally takes several years.

  • English Language Proficiency: A qualifying score on selected assessments that indicates proficiency in reading and writing English
  • Proficiency in Another Language: A qualifying score on an approved exam or  qualifying coursework in science or social studies taught in a language other than English or  qualifying scores on the Low-Incidence Partner Language Rubric
  • Sociocultural Competency: A predetermined number of cultural activities, clubs, workshops, and/or conferences; students are evaluated through a written essay, presentation, or interview.

The MPS Seal of Biliteracy went through several years of development and is approved by the State of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Students first earned the Seal of Biliteracy in spring 2020.
