Come join us as we celebrate the planned adoption of the State Seal of Biliteracy by Chicago Public Schools! This adoption will help us support our vision of equipping all students with the linguistic and cultural competencies they need to be successful global citizens.
 

You will learn about the State Seal of Biliteracy initiative and meet representatives from different language institutes, museums, universities, businesses, and CPS schools to find out what resources are available locally to promote the study of languages and cultures.
