Twenty-eight Greenville County Schools students qualified for and received the prestigious SC Seal of Biliteracy designation.  Twenty-one students received the silver level designation, and seven received the bronze level designation. This is the first year that GCS students have participated in the program.

All South Carolina students in their junior or senior year are eligible to attain the South Carolina Seal of Biliteracy based on two qualification areas.  Students must meet qualifications in both English and a language other than English in order to attain the recognition at the gold, silver or bronze level.  Gold level recipients demonstrate Advanced-Low proficiency in a language other than English in reading, writing, listening and speaking. Silver level recipients demonstrate Intermediate-High proficiency in the same four areas, while bronze level recipients demonstrate Intermediate-Mid proficiency. 

The South Carolina Seal of Biliteracy award encourages students to take ownership of their language proficiency growth, to better prepare themselves for today’s workforce, and to become life-long language learners.  Earning this award gives South Carolina students an opportunity to provide evidence displaying their language proficiency to universities and employers.
