| November 30, 2022

Mohonasen Central School District was recently awarded the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) in two world languages in addition to English, and a two- to four-years badge for consistency in offering and completing the NYSSB. To earn the NYSSB, students must demonstrate intermediate to high proficiency in English and the required level of proficiency in one or more world languages set forth by the New York State Learning Standards for World Languages, adopted by the Board of Regents in March 2021.

Mohonasen acknowledges the importance of being biliterate in today’s global society. NYSSB highlights the hard work and achievements of students and encourages them to pursue language study while in school, including the continued development of one’s home language. The recognition of attaining biliteracy is a statement of accomplishment to future employers and for college admission.

Twenty-seven other schools in the Capital Region earned this distinction.
