The State of Iowa Seal of Biliteracy is offered to all high school students within the Bettendorf School District who can demonstrate proficiency in English and a world language of the student's choosing. The world language does not have to be offered in the Bettendorf School District. It can be a language that a student speaks with family or perhaps a language that a student learned abroad.
