CUSD Seal of Bi-literacy
The Arizona State Seal of Bi-literacy recognizes students who graduate from a school and have attained a high level of proficiency in one or more languages in addition to English. The Seal of Bi-literacy encourages students to pursue bi-literacy, honors the skills students attain, and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.
The seal requires students to show high levels of proficiency in English by successfully completing all English requirements for graduation with an overall grade point average in those classes of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Students must also show high levels of proficiency in English by receiving a passing score in English on the state assessment. The student must attain the required score on a language assessment as adopted by the State Board of Education. English Second Language Learners must also obtain a score of Proficient or Higher on the AZELLA Assessment.
CUSD students interested in earning the Arizona State Seal of Bi-literacy on their diploma will need to apply online by February of their Junior or Senior year.
