Ballston Spa Class of 2021 Earn New York State Seal of Biliteracy

BALLSTON SPA — Seventy-five graduating students in the Ballston Spa High School Class of 2021 recently qualified for the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB) and received the seal on their diploma at the BSHS graduation ceremony in June. 

The New York State Education Department established the NYSSB in 2012 to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English. It is the sixth year the Ballston Spa High School has provided the opportunity for students to earn the NYSSB. 

The NYSSB is awarded by the Commissioner of Education to students who meet criteria established by the Board of Regents and who attend schools in districts that voluntarily agree to participate in the program. Starting in 2016, the NYSSB is affixed to the high school diploma and transcript of graduating students attaining the NYSSB.
