102 graduates in Class of 2020 earn Seal of Biliteracy

The FCPS Seal of Biliteracy recognizes graduating seniors who can demonstrate functional language skills in English and another language. For the 2019-20 academic year, 102 graduates earned this distinction in French, German, Hungarian, Japanese, Lingala, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, and Swedish.  

Henry Clay High School received the year’s gold banner with a district-high 44 seal recipients. Seven other schools produced applicants: Bryan Station High School, Carter G. Woodson Academy, Frederick Douglass High School, Lafayette High School, Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, Tates Creek High School, and The Learning Center. 

Since the Seal of Biliteracy’s adoption in 2017 by the Fayette County Board of Education, 367 students have earned this distinction in 17 world languages. For questions, please email Laura Roche Youngworth, world languages content specialist in Fayette County Public Schools.
