South Dakota Seal of Biliteracy
The South Dakota Seal of Biliteracy is a recognition added to the high school diplomas of students who have mastered one or more languages alongside English proficiency. This webpage will serve as an implementation guide for school districts that are interested in offering this distinguished acknowledgement to their students.
The South Dakota Department of Education is offering a Silver and Gold Seal of Biliteracy. The requirements for obtaining the seals can be found in the SD Seal of Biliteracy Implementation Guide below. Students who qualify will receive a physical seal that can be affixed to their high school diplomas as well as an identifier on the student's transcript. Participation in this program is voluntary for school districts.
