125 Lexington One seniors earn Seal of Biliteracy

Lexington, SC (06/01/2021) - This year, 125 Lexington County School District One students have earned the South Carolina Seal of Biliteracy. This award recognizes students who attain a high level of proficiency in English and at least one other world language. The seal advances the state's commitment to preparing every learner for college and career readiness in an increasingly international community. To earn the seal, a student must earn a 3.0 grade point average in English Language Arts and pass the Standards Based Measures of Proficiency test in any world language. The test ranks students from bronze to gold depending on their proficiency level.

Congratulations to the 125 Lexington District One graduates who earned a Seal of Biliteracy.
