Courtesy of: Edmonds School District The Edmonds School Board recognized 63 district students on May 11 who earned the Seal of Biliteracy by passing the Assessment of Language Proficiency.

The Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to students who have achieved a demonstrated proficiency in a language other than English, typically by receiving a high score on a nationally-recognized proficiency assessment.

This year, 63 Edmonds School District students earned the “Seal of Biliteracy,” representing 18 different languages. The students were recognized by members of the Edmonds School District Board at one of its recent meetings.
