North Salem High School now offers Oregon’s State Seal of Biliteracy

The Oregon State Seal of Biliteracy honors and validates the home or primary language students bring to their English academic education and honors all students who demonstrate a high level of literacy in two or more languages, one being English. It also provides employers and universities with a method of identifying people with strong language and biliteracy skills. Upon graduation, students who qualify for the seal of biliteracy receive a certificate of achievement, a biliteracy seal in their diploma and a note of biliteracy attainment in their high school transcripts.

The Assessments are available in these languages:  Arabic, Cantonese, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced lunch, you may receive a reduced fee waiver to cover the cost of the $19.90 assessment fee.  To register for the assessment your student may contact the School Testing Coordinator Rena Lewis on or by December 15th to register for their second language test.  Email:  lewis_rena@salkeiz.k12.or.us  or Room 232.
