Seal of Biliteracy 

    The State Seal of Biliteracy is an award given to graduating high school students, regardless of diploma type, that have attained proficiency in English and one or more languages. We are pleased to offer the Seal of Biliteracy to students who graduate from Tuscarora. They receive the Seal on their diploma upon graduation and are recognized at the Senior Awards Ceremony and at graduation. 

    SY 2020-2021 COVID-19 Process: Due to the pandemic, only seniors will be tested to measure proficiency. The ACTFL Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Language® (AAPPL) will be offered at no cost to students for the following languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish. This state-approved, online assessment can be used as evidence for the Seal of Biliteracy.
