NECSD Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month! As part of our celebration, we recognize the 52 recent graduates who earned a Seal of Biliteracy upon high school graduation, 7 of these scholars are English Language Learners (ELLs), and one scholar earned a double seal! The New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English. Students must complete all requirements for graduating with a NYS Regents diploma and must earn sufficient credits towards demonstrating proficiency in English and another language through the New York State Seal of Biliteracy point system. This tremendous achievement is recognized by a black, white, and blue cord at graduation. NECSD recipients of the 2021 Seal of Biliteracy are:
