Har-Ber students honored at Seal of Biliteracy ceremony

Har-Ber High School celebrated 33 students at a Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy ceremony April 10 in the school's Performing Arts Center.

Springdale Public Schools leads the state in Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy students for 2023, with 120 of the 716 annual seal recipients attending district schools. Springdale likewise leads the state in total Seal of Biliteracy recipients, with more than 1,300 of the 4,365 total students recognized for the achievement attending Springdale Schools. The seal was officially endorsed by the Arkansas Department of Education in 2018.

Students were presented with a certificate and a medal at the ceremony to recognize their achievement.

The certificate presents an opportunity for further learning and growth in the workplace as students move forward with applying what they've learned as part of earning the seal.

Students had to score proficient or better in English when taking the ACT, ACT Aspire or ELPA to earn the recognition. For the secondary language, students had to pass the reading, writing, listening and speaking portions of the Spanish, Chinese or Vietnamese language test.

The Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy is approved by the Arkansas Department of Education, the Arkansas Foreign Language Teachers Association and Arkansas Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, she said.

Don Tyson School of Innovation's ceremony will be in early May on a to-be-determined date. Information on Springdale High School's Seal of Biliteracy ceremony is pending.
