In the first year of Keystone Oaks High School’s Advanced Placement French and Spanish classes, three students have earned Global Seals of Biliteracy. Seniors Taylor Knavish and Abriana Lyda both earned Functional Fluency in French and Class of 2021 graduate Ethan VonHedemann earned Function Fluency in Spanish.
The Global Seal of Biliteracy is awarded to students who score a three or above on the Advanced Placement exam, demonstrating proficiency in that language. It is a credential that celebrates language skills and expands future opportunities for its recipients.
According to the Global Seal of Biliteracy, individuals who meet the criteria of Functional Fluency “can function in the certified language when completing familiar routines and tasks in predictable situations. They can describe products, services, policies or procedures, take orders, complete formulaic documents and payment transactions, provide scripted presentations and answer expected, frequently asked questions.”
Congratulations to these three students on this outstanding achievement!
