HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION:
There is a one-year requirement for graduation. World Language is one of the “selective electives”, along with Fine Arts and Applied Arts. A student must earn 10 credits in two of the three areas. If a student earns 10 credits from World Language they would still need 10 credits from Fine Arts or Applied Arts for graduation.
e. Language Other than English – 2 years required, 3 years recommended
Two years of the same language other than English. Courses should emphasize speaking and understanding, and include instruction in grammar, vocabulary, reading, composition and culture. Courses in languages other than English taken in the seventh and eighth grades may be used to fulfill part of this requirement if your high school accepts them as equivalent to its own courses (Quoted from the University of California).
