The Seal of Multilingual Proficiency

What is the purpose of the Seal of Multilingual Proficiency?

 

The Stanislaus County Seal of Multilingual Proficiency is an award given by the Stanislaus County Office of Education in partnership with local school districts.  It recognizes and honors student attainment of proficiency in English and at least one other world language by high school graduation.  Appearing on the transcript of the graduating senior, the Seal of Multilingual Proficiency serves to verify a student’s linguistic proficiencies to potential employers and interested colleges.

 

A message from the Superintendent,SCOE Superintendent

One of the many assets of the Central Valley of California is the diversity of its population.  Many of our citizens and neighbors represent international cultures and speak a variety of languages.  The Stanislaus County Office of Education applauds students with mastery in multiple languages.  The Seal of Multilingual Proficiency recognizes those students who have developed proficiency in English and at least one other world language.  This proficiency enhances a student's education and value in the market place.  Our economy is tied to that of other nations, and Californians who can participate across international borders bring strength and potential to this State's global enterprises.
