NYSSB Annual Reports

Each year since 2018-19, the New York State Education Department (NYSED or “the Department”) has released an Annual Report on the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB or “the Seal”). The reports summarize facts and figures, such as the number of students who have earned the Seal, and the number of schools that have offered it.  The data is disaggregated in several meaningful ways, including by year, by region, by gender, and by race and ethnicity, which can provide valuable information for districts and schools to recruit and support students in their pursuit of the Seal. The reports also identify future goals for growth areas, strategies to achieve these goals, and provide information regarding how the NYSSB compares to other such programs throughout the country.
