New York State Seal of Biliteracy

At Saturday’s CAES Business Meeting, Ricardo Constantino, from the Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages at the New York State Education Department, presented about the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB). Ricardo (a former Latin student of Judy Greenwood from Albany High School) led a discussion about how Latin students could earn the NYSSB.
