San Lorenzo Unified School District
Recognizes Accomplishments in English Development and World Languages
136 Students Earn Reclassification and 82 Students Earn Biliteracy Awards in 2018
On Thursday, June 7 2018, the San Lorenzo Unified School District held the Annual Pathways to Bi-literacy Awards to celebrate our students who have been reclassified as Fluent English Proficient , those on the Pathway to Biliteracy and those who have earned The California State Seal of Biliteracy.
136– Students Reclassified as Fluent English Proficient
27 - High school students are receiving the Official State Seal
41 - Middle school students will be recognized for the Pathway to Biliteracy
14 - Elementary school students will be recognized for the Pathway to Biliteracy
English learners who have demonstrated proficiency in English and met language proficiency and academic targets are “reclassified” and considered fluent English proficient. The District’s goal is for every English Learner in our district to reclassify. This year, 136 students earned this distinction!
To earn the Seal, students must demonstrate English competency by meeting specific state requirements, demonstrating fluency in a language other than English and receiving good grades in all English classes required for high school graduation. World language competency must be demonstrated through a four-year course of study in a world language or by passing a test (such as the Advanced Placement exam or a school district language examination).
On behalf of the District’s English Language Learner Program and District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC), San Lorenzo Unified congratulates our Reclassified students, those who are on the Pathway to Biliteracy and our high school seniors, celebrating their linguistic accomplishments in earning the State Seal of Biliteracy. Congratulations!
