Seal of Biliteracy


map of Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Seal of Biliteracy builds upon the rich cultural and linguistic assets of Wisconsin's students. The Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to graduating high school students in districts with a Department of Public Instruction-approved program, who have demonstrated achievement in bilingualism, biliteracy, and sociocultural competence in two or more languages (English and a partner language) by successfully participating in the development of the languages through our schools, their families, and the community.



bullhornThe Department of Public Instruction is currently updating the Seal of Biliteracy application form and guidance document. During this time, we will not be processing new Seal of Biliteracy applications from June 25, 2018 - October 2018.

The window for accepting applications for the Seal of Biliteracy will open on November 1, 2018.
