A815 (Brownley) would establish a State Seal of Biliteracy, a voluntary program, to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in one or more world languages, in addition to English. AB 815 (Brownley) would ensure that high school graduates seeking this state recognition would meet specific rigorous standards established by the state, regardless of which district or school they attend. AB 532 (V. Manuel Perez) will be amended to eliminate references to the current assessment system so that only the future/successor assessment system is affected and references to modifications to the test will be eliminated. Additionally, an amendment will be included to clarify that the bill is referring to an existing advisory committee, work group, task force or technical assistance as specified. We believe these amendments address the costs identified by CDE and the Committee consultant.
