Seal of Biliteracy

Mapleton Public Schools supports a system of education that develops and teaches standards that enable students to achieve the highest level of knowledge and skills.

 

Mapleton is a diverse community in which many families communicate in two or more languages. As a recognition and celebration of our students’ multilingualism, Mapleton’s Board of Education has adopted Colorado’s Seal of Biliteracy.

 

According to the Colorado Department of Education, “A seal of biliteracy is a credential given by a Colorado school or district recognizing students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. A seal of biliteracy encourages students to pursue biliteracy skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions office.”
