SANDY — Students in the Canyons School District who are fluent in two or more languages can apply to have an official Seal of Biliteracy added to your high school transcripts.

The state places the seal on a high school graduate's transcript to certify for employers and universities that the student has demonstrated proficiency in English and at least one world language. It is evidence of a student's readiness for a career, college and for engagement as a global citizen.
