Are you a graduating Senior who 1) reads, writes, understands, and speaks a language in addition to English, 2) has a 3.0 cumulative average in your ELA classes (or Hawaiian Language Arts classes if you are a Hawaiian Immersion student), and who 3) has an overall, cumulative 3.0 GPA? IF you meet these three criteria, you should apply for the HIDOE Seal of Biliteracy, an academic recognition!
Once you have met the initial eligibility, you must demonstrate your fluency with an AP language test score of three (3) or higher, or an Avant Language Assessment/World Speak score of five (5) or higher.
