more than one language. To receive the seal, students must demonstrate proficiency in English
and at least one other language through approved assessments. Students must be able to read,
write, listen, and speak in the language in which they test. Read more about
the biliteracy guidance, including proficiency levels and accepted assessments here.
At Ames High, the STAMP test will be offered during the school day on November 14th and
15th at a discounted cost of $19.90. Seniors should indicate their interest in qualifying for
the Seal of Biliteracy at http://bit.ly/AHSseal by Friday, Nov. 1. Details about sign up for the test
