Missouri Seal of Biliteracy
The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy (SoBL) promotes active participation in a global society and economy by incentivizing, recognizing and celebrating the acquisition of biliteracy skills and sociocultural awareness. The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy and Distinguished Missouri Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to graduating high school students in districts with a DESE-approved program, who have demonstrated achievement in English, a Language Other Than English (LOTE) and sociocultural competence.
The St. Joseph School District is proud to participate in this exciting statewide program. The Missouri Seal of Biliteracy is endorsed by a number of Missouri businesses and institutions of higher education including Evangel University, Missouri State University, Missouri Southern University, Northwest Missouri State University, Truman State University, and the University of Central Missouri.
Visit with your high school counselor to learn more about this program or visit the Missouri Seal of Biliteracy implementation guide.
