Adding Seal of Biliteracy to Transcript

The world language curriculum developer reviews the data twice a year for delivery to the head registrar. The following information is included in the spreadsheet:

  • Student ID
  • Student Name
  • Language
  • Test Code (Name of test)
  • Test Date
  • School

The head registrar then uploads the information into the student data system, where it is then rolled into CEDARS the same evening. We will receive an error the next day describing any problems.


English Language Requirement

The English language graduation requirements are tracked through graduation. Students who qualify for graduation must have met the English Language requirement.


Informing Students and Families

After each bulk upload, the curriculum department will work with support staff to create notification letters for qualifying students. Using the same spreadsheet, we will create and print letters to students and families that are sent to the schools for distribution.


Graduation

In May, we will send a list of students who have earned the Seal of Biliteracy to the graduation coordinator and the principals. We will also send them official seals for their diplomas.
