The Seal of Biliteracy is a program to recognize a high school graduate who has attained a high level of competency in listening, speaking, reading and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. The purpose of the Seal of Biliteracy is to encourage students to study languages, certify attainment of biliteracy, provide employers with a method of identifying an individual who has language and biliteracy skills, recognize and promote World Languages instruction in public schools, strengthen relationships, affirm the value of diversity and honor the multiple cultures and languages of a community.
The Seal of Biliteracy shall be awarded upon graduation to a high school student who:

1. Completed the English requirements for graduation with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above

2. Passed a statewide, standardized assessment in reading (FSA/FCAT) administered in high school at Level 4 or above
