Are you Bilingual? Apply Now for a Special Seal on your Transcripts

Calling all bilingual 11th and 12th grade students: If you’re fluent in two or more languages, you can apply to have an official Seal of Biliteracy added to your high school transcripts.  

The Seal of Biliteracy is placed on a high school graduate’s transcript by the state of Utah to certify for employers and universities that the student has demonstrated proficiency in English and at least one world language. It is evidence of a student’s readiness for a career, college and for engagement as a global citizen. 

Last year, 102 Canyons District graduates received Seals of Biliteracy on their diplomas. Currently enrolled high school juniors and seniors are eligible to apply for the seal starting Monday, Dec. 2. The application window closes on Jan. 24, 2020.  

New this year: Students can complete the application online from the comfort of their homes at https://sealofbiliteracy.canyonsdistrict.org/. As part of the application process, students may be required to take a language proficiency exam at their high school sometime between March 3-14. Individual schools will determine the date, time and location of testing. Students may also demonstrate their proficiency by achieving a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement exam in their world language.

There are no fees associated with the first application. But if a student chooses to demonstrate fluency in more than one world language, a $20 testing fee may apply.

Additional guidelines and information about the requirements can be found on the Utah State Board of Education’s website.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
