Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is helping to prepare students for the Maryland Seal of Biliteracy Program by hosting upcoming student and parent/guardian information sessions, one held each month in September, October, and December. The topics will cover reading, writing, speaking, and listening strategies. The program is geared toward high school students.
The Seal of Biliteracy is an award given by a school, district, or state to recognize students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation. A student can receive the Seal if he or she can demonstrate full proficiency in language learning as measured by rigorous proficiency assessments across a range of language skills.
Students who are interested in the Maryland Seal of Biliteracy Program should plan to attend the online information events through Zoom. The dates, times, and Zoom details for the information sessions are below.
