Nossa história

O Selo Voluntário de Biliteracia do Estado começou em 2018, quando os educadores de Nashville trouxeram o programa de premiação ao Tennessee para apoiar e celebrar os recursos linguísticos de seus alunos.  Desde então, o programa de premiação cresceu em todo o estado e cerca de 1.000 alunos receberam o prêmio Selo de Biliteracia em mais de 40 escolas participantes.  Acreditamos que estudantes, membros da comunidade e educadores são líderes capazes e eficazes em práticas e advocacia equitativas e buscamos desenvolver oportunidades de liderança profissional e acadêmica para todas as partes interessadas por meio de nosso trabalho.

Our Core Values

We believe that language matters for all students in Tennessee!

We believe that funding at the school or district level should not be a barrier for students and educators.  All award materials, support, and training are available at no cost for public and public charter schools in Tennessee. Independent and parochial schools are asked to pay a small annual fee to participate in the award program.  

We believe that all languages and communities are worthy of celebration and recognition.  All state and nationally recognized English language and World language assessments are eligible for the Volunteer State Seal of Biliteracy and we collaborate with state and national organizations to provide portfolio options for languages where assessments are not currently available.

We believe that language learning and community building is a lifelong journey. Through fostering discussions around equity, language, and resources across our state, we hope to encourage schools and districts to both recognize and honor the linguistic assets students already possess and to support additional pathways and coursework towards world language proficiency across our state from elementary through post-secondary.

We believe that educators are leaders and experts in their field. Our work is led and directed by active educators who see the need for additional support and opportunities for students across the state to pursue true multilingual fluency and to connect these assets with college and career opportunities after graduation.
