Be sure that the Assistant Principal receives a copy of your score when it becomes available. Until scores are available, a student will be placed on a “pending” list and sent the Biliteracy Seal when results of testing are confirmed. If a student completed any of the above tests while enrolled at a different school, the student must submit their test scores and the required form described above. The due date for the submission and the Biliteracy form for the above Tests is April 15th of the present school year.


        1. If a student is in an Advanced Placement (AP) class, the results of this test are not reported until August. At that time, if the student has received a score of 3 or higher and met all other requirements, the seal will be sent to the student. The SAT/ACTFL tests may be taken throughout the school year and scores may be available prior to graduation.
