Nebraska Seal of Biliteracy (NILA)


Nebraska currently has no state seal of biliteracy program. See the information below to find out how you can earn your NILA Seal of Biliteracy or your Global Seal of BIliteracy.

The Nebraska International Languages Association (NILA) has a comparable seal of biliteracy program, please see their website for details.

The Global Seal has grown out of the State Seal of Biliteracy programs that have swept across the country. The Global Seal of Biliteracy continues to be a strong advocate and supporter of the State Seal programs. By adopting a State Seal of Biliteracy, each state government formally recognizes the importance of educating bilingual and biliterate students. We encourage you and your colleagues to be active advocates for language learning initiatives and continue the effort to bring the State Seal of Biliteracy to Nebraska.

The Global Seal of Biliteracy complements and supports the individual state Seals of Biliteracy and can provide an option for those who want to award language credentials now. Our organization is committed to expanding the opportunity to demonstrate one's bilingualism to language learners not currently included in the state Seal programs. The Global Seal of Biliteracy credential meets or exceeds the requirements of all existing U.S. state Seal programs, and offers a uniform standard to recognize language skills at levels that are meaningful for academic and workplace environments. It allows recipients to showcase their language skills to any school or employer across state lines and national borders. The Global Seal of Biliteracy is proof of your language proficiency at the Intermediate Mid or Advanced Low levels.
