Bilingual State Seal

The State Seal of Bilingualism-Biliteracy (SSBB) is an award given by a school district or charter school to recognize 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 pursuing bilingualism-biliteracy, honoring skills attained from school, family, or community, and can be evidence of attractive skills to future employers and college admissions offices. 

Students must complete four units of credit with a grade of C or higher and successfully demonstrate proficiency by taking a language assessment in ONE language other than English.
