Graduation Requirements: minimum of three credits required within Grades 9-12; four credits recommended.
Students will take the first three years of their modern language in the same language; students wishing to switch from one language to another may do so after having successfully completed the third-year course. Students who pass a foreign language course but whose progress has not sufficiently prepared them for success in the next course will repeat the prior course. They will receive a foreign language credit for the retaken course and a generic core credit for the credit earned in the prior course. (Example: A student who earns a D in Spanish II in Grade 10 will repeat Spanish II in Grade 11 and then be required to complete Spanish III in Grade 12. The credits in Grades 9, 11, and 12 count for the three required credits and the credit in Grade 10 counts as a generic core credit toward the overall requirement of 20 core credits.)
