Seal of Biliteracy

The Seal has gone LIVE as a RIDE endorsed designation with RI legislative support! See the Frequently Asked Questions documents below for details. This is a highly recommended program for all graduating seniors in Rhode Island! 

RIDE Council Designation Seal of Biliteracy Information

The Seal of Biliteracy celebrates students who have multilingual competence – a critical skill in today’s global society and an asset that will prepare Rhode Island graduates for success in the local and global economy. The Seal of Biliteracy certifies that a student has demonstrated skills in the English language and one or more other world languages. Beginning with the class of 2021, students can earn a state-recognized Seal of Biliteracy by demonstrating competence in English Language Arts standards as defined by the Commissioner Seal or English Proficiency standards, and nationally-recognized world language standards.

Our vision is to help students recognize the value of their academic success and see the tangible benefits of being bilingual.
