• The Seal of Biliteracy/The Commendation toward Biliteracy

    Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, Bloomington Public Schools, District 87 is excited to offer the opportunity for juniors and seniors to earn the Seal of Biliteracy, in which students who show a high level of proficiency in two or more languages will be recognized by the state of Illinois. Students will be honored their senior/graduating year.

    We value our students' linguistic diversity.  Students who earn the Seal will receive the following:

    • A Seal attached to their diploma
    • Documentation of language proficiencies on their permanent transcript
    • Students who plan to attend an Illinois college or university will also earn credits for their accolades.
