Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy

The Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy recognizes Arkansas high school students who have attained proficiency in two or more languages.  It is the result of a collaborative effort between the Arkansas Foreign Language Teachers Association (AFLTA) and the Arkansas Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ARKTESOL).  In June 2018, the Arkansas State Board of Education officially endorsed the Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy.
State Board Resolution regarding the Seal of Biliteracy
Since March 2017, more than 800 biliterate Arkansas high school students have been awarded the Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy, recognizing their proficiency in English and a total of eleven other languages.
More information can be found at the Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy website.
