The Utica Community Schools will be offering a seal of global language upon graduation for students completing the required criteria. The seal of global language is a recognition given by Utica Community Schools to students who have attained proficiency in English and one or more other world languages by high school graduation. Global language proficiency is defined as having the ability to read, write, speak and listen in more than one language. This recognition becomes part of the high school transcript and diploma. The seal demonstrates a student's readiness for college and career, it can be evidence of skills to future employers and it recognizes a student's engagement as a global citizen.
Utica Community Schools embraces an expectation that our students attain a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, listening and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. All students are eligible to attain the Seal of Global language based on evidence of achieving the designated level of language proficiency in English plus one or more other languages during their
high school years.
Please see the Seal of Global Language pathways document to view the various ways that a student can obtain this recognition.
More information can also be obtained from your child’s school counselor.
