Seal of Biliteracy & Pathway to Biliteracy

Pathway to Biliteracy

The Branson School District would like to recognize students in grades K-8 who demonstrate an ability to communicate in more than one language, based on designated criteria. The Pathway to Biliteracy Award can be earned by demonstrating appropriate tasks in English and another language each school year. Applications should be returned to building ESL teachers by the deadline each spring. Students will be recognized with a certificate at the end of each school year in which they have met the criteria for the Pathway to Biliteracy Award.

Seal of Biliteracy

The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy (SoBL) and Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to graduating high school students in districts with a DESE-approved program, who have demonstrated achievement in English, a Language Other Than English (LOTE) and sociocultural competence. All Missouri students studying any of the world's languages are potential Seal candidates (Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education).
