Seal of Biliteracy
The Pawling Central School District recognizes the importance of bilingualism in this technological
and global era. Research has shown that bilingualism leads to many cognitive benefits. Scientists
refer to these benefits as the bilingual advantage. The ability to speak, understand and write in
more than one language offers a student many advantages including academic, social, and
Pawling High School is proud to participate in the New York State Seal of Biliteracy program.
Students who can demonstrate language mastery in both English and any other language may
apply to the Seal of Literacy program in their senior year. Participation in this program is voluntary
and no fees other than exam fees will be charged to the student.
The Seal of Biliteracy program is overseen by the Seal of Biliteracy Committee (SBC). The
Committee developed this handbook to provide students and their families with all pertinent
information about the Seal of Biliteracy program, including graduation criteria and the program
application. It is strongly suggested that any student interested in the Seal of Biliteracy program
speak with a School Counselor no later than the junior year. All applications must be submitted
through the Pawling High School Counseling Office.

Students with Disabilities
Applying for SAT and ACT Testing Accommodations
Applying for Services in College
Program adjustments for students with documented disabilities are not covered by FAPE at the post-secondary level of education. A student must actively seek out and advocate for their right to academic adjustments. Below are some links and documents to help. There are procedures for students with documented disabilities seeking program adjustments at the post-secondary level:
2. Student (not parent) will decide whether or not to disclose a disability to colleges.
3. Student (and parent if under 18) will sign a release (available to print from files below) allowing IEP/504/Declassified Document and Psychoeducational Report to be forwarded to the college office that provides adjustments.
4. When the student makes the final college choice, it is the student's responsibility to access services through the college's office that provides academic adjustments.
