Two Chateaugay Central School seniors have demonstrated proficiency in communicating through a second language and have earned the New York State Seal of Biliteracy (NYSSB).

The NYSSB recognizes high school graduates who have attained and can demonstrate a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing in more than one language.

The intent of the NYSSB is to encourage the study of languages; identify high school graduates with language and biliteracy skills for employers; provide universities with additional information about applicants seeking admission; prepare students for twenty-first century skills; recognize the value of foreign and native language instruction in schools; and affirm the value of diversity in a multilingual society.

This year, a record number of students participated in the Seal of Biliteracy program through the Jefferson-Lewis BOCES consortium and collaboration with participating local school districts. For the first time, students from Chateaugay Central School in Franklin county participated, joining those in Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence and Oswego counties.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, final presentations by participating students took place virtually May 19 through May 24.

Each student’s final presentation took place before a panel of judges made up of local foreign language instructors. The presentation focused on what the student had learned about the culture during the course of the project, all the while communicating in a second language.

Students earning the Seal of Biliteracy received a virtual certificate and other items. The Seal of Biliteracy is placed on each student’s high school diploma upon graduation.

The following students from Chateaugay Central School earned the Seal of Biliteracy — included with the name of the student is their second language and the name of their presentation.

Chloe Boyea, daughter of Justin and Paula Boyea of Chateaugay, NY: Catholicism in Mexico. Chloe is a senior who loves and excels at World Languages and her native language of English. She has taken both Spanish and French at an advanced pace via independent studies. Chloe will be attending Notre Dame to major in Neuroscience and Behavior. Her love of languages is fueled by her desire to be able to understand people and empathize or help them. According to Chloe, “ It’s much easier to do that when I can speak, face to face, to them in an easy and relaxed way. I think the key to peace between people is mutual understanding because it’s important to know who someone is and where they’re coming from.”

Jordyn Holbrook, daughter of Michelle Holbrook of Chateaugay, NY: Health Care in Latin America. Jordyn is a senior who will be attending the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine to study medical biology on a doctor of Osteopathic medicine pathway. She has taken Spanish, French at Chateaugay Central at an advanced pace, and has done coursework on the distance learning network in Mandarin Chinese, and Russian and independently learned German during the pandemic. “I want to be able to use my languages to travel the world and help people in underserved areas that may not otherwise have access. It will allow me to experience different cultures and see an abundance of different perspectives. Having these languages as I move toward becoming a doctor, and in everyday life, will help me connect to people.” says Jordyn.

Congratulations Chloe and Jordyn!


  • 12- to 17-Year-Olds Who Get Vaccinated Can Have Names Entered into Random Drawing for A Full Scholarship to SUNY or CUNY Beginning May 27

  • 10 Winners Per Week for Five Weeks; Full Scholarship Including Tuition, Room and Board

  • Sign Up to Be Notified When Drawing Begins Here

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the 'Get a Shot to Make Your Future' incentive for 12- to 17-year-olds to get vaccinated for COVID-19. Participants can enter into a random prize drawing and potentially receive a full scholarship to a SUNY or CUNY college beginning May 27. Winners receive a full scholarship to any public college or university, including tuition and room and board. New York State will administer the random drawing and select 10 winners a week over five weeks for a total of 50 winners. Federal COVID-19 relief and outreach funds will be used to cover the cost of this vaccination incentive program.

"Vaccination rates across the state are beginning to slow and our greatest need is with young New Yorkers who make up a large percent of positive cases and have the lowest vaccination percentage in the state," Governor Cuomo said. "To better reach this population and defeat COVID once and for all we need to get creative in our efforts. We're offering all 12- to 17-year-olds a potentially life-changing opportunity—a full scholarship, room and board at any public college or university in New York—in exchange for getting vaccinated. And the earlier you get vaccinated, the more chances you have to win—it's free, there's no appointments and you also have a chance to win a full scholarship, so if you haven't already done so, go get vaccinated."

The winners will receive up to four years of full-time undergraduate study or five years in an approved five-year bachelor's degree program which includes the following components:

  • Tuition: An amount equal to tuition at the State or City University of New York's in-state tuition.

  • Non-tuition Costs: Room and board and allowances for books, supplies and transportation up to the average cost at SUNY colleges.

  • Residence: Students living on campus will receive a higher room and board allowance than commuter students. If housing is not available for students on campus, they will receive the same allowance as students living on campus.

The New York State Department of Health and New York State Higher Education Services Corporation will verify the vaccination status of winners.

SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras said, "COVID-19 has challenged our students time and time again, and they have done everything we asked of them over the past year to keep our campuses open and safe. With vaccinations as the key to a more normal academic and campus experience, this scholarship incentive can help ensure our entire campus communities have a safe and full college experience this Fall semester."

CUNY Chancellor Flix V. Matos Rodrguez said, "It is imperative we do all we can to get as many New Yorkers as possible vaccinated so that we may finally overcome this dreaded public health crisis. We thank Governor Cuomo and look forward to the healthy and safe Fall 2021 semester that a vaccinated student body will help to ensure."

New York State Higher Education Services Corporation President Dr. Guillermo Linares said, "HESC is proud to be a part of Governor Cuomo's NYS Vaccine Incentive to encourage New York's youth to get vaccinated and help drive down the overall number of positive COVID cases in New York State. While we have seen a significant rise in the number of New Yorkers who are fully vaccinated, it is critical we continue to vaccinate as many people, as quickly as possible, to help prevent the spread. With the chance to receive a free, full-ride to any CUNY or SUNY, two or four year college, there is no better time than now to ensure our young people are vaccinated to protect themselves and all New Yorkers."

On May 12, Governor Cuomo accepted the New York State Clinical Advisory Task Force's recommendation to immediately implement expanded use authorization of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds. All 12- to 17-year-olds who have been vaccinated are eligible for the incentive irrespective of when they received the vaccine.

Every day on our Facebook page we have been posting some CCS memories. The pictures were found in a few dusty old boxes when some remodeling work was being completed in the high school wing of the building. The album linked here contains all the pictures that have been shared so far. We hope you like these little trips down memory lane.
