West Genesee’s Students Earn the NYS Seal of Biliteracy

Seal of Bi-Literacy StudentsWest Genesee has students receiving the NYS Seal of Biliteracy for the fifth year in a row.

This honor recognizes high school graduates who have attained a “high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English.”
