Santa Fe South High School (Oklahoma City, OK)
Data Recognition Corporation piloted LAS Links Español in the summer of 2018 at Santa Fe South High School. Twenty-six of the students who participated in the pilot program were awarded the Seal of Biliteracy. One of those students shifted between American and Mexican cultures. Her first language was Spanish, and they didn’t let her speak it in school, so she had to learn English. She realized that obtaining the Seal of Biliteracy and becoming bilingual could provide new educational and career opportunities.
