Twenty East Ramapo High School Students Earn New York State Seal of Biliteracy
The East Ramapo Central School District is proud to announce that eight Spring Valley High School students and twelve Ramapo High School students received the New York State Seal of Biliteracy. The New York State Seal of Biliteracy was adopted to promote a way for students to show their academic competencies in at least two languages. Students who receive the Seal must demonstrate their proficiency in English and a World Language.
Students were mentored through the process by teachers and met regularly throughout the school year to develop a thesis, research their topics, write a final research paper, and create a multi-media presentation to share their findings. Students chose to research global issues such as Careers for Women in STEM, Human Trafficking, Corruption in Government, Racism, Human Rights, Immigration, Health Care, and Healthy Nutrition for Children.
Upon successful completion of their final project, students received a certificate of recognition and medal representing their accomplishment which they will wear at Graduation.
