State Seal of Bilingualism-Biliteracy
WHAT IS THE STATE SEAL OF BILINGUALISM- BILITERACY (SSBB)?
The State Seal of Bilingualism-Biliteracy (SSBB) is an award given by a school district or charter school in recognition of students who, by high school graduation, demonstrate proficiency in a language other than English. The SSBB emblem is placed on the graduating senior's diploma of excellence (including a notation on the transcript). It also encourages the pursuing of bilingualism-biliteracy, honoring of skills attained from school, family or community, and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.
