Students earn Georgia’s new Seal of Biliteracy

Four graduating seniors at McIntosh High are among the first to receive the new Georgia Seal of Biliteracy, which became available to students for the first time this school year.

The students are Brandon Vanatta, Luis De La Mora Contreras, Laura Saltos, and Abby Rodriguez.

The diploma seal recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. To qualify for the Georgia Seal of Biliteracy, students must complete language arts requirements for graduation with an overall grade point average of 3.0 or above, and show proficiency in one or more languages other than English as demonstrated by passing a foreign language advanced placement examination with a score of 4 or higher.
