*Note: # of High Schools in County counts all schools that were reported in the OSPI CEDARS data report of schools with world language enrollments in Spring 2012. Some were actually middle schools, but the students were able to earn high school credits so the schools were listed in the query.

Impact of Competency-Based Credits

Since 2011, students in Washington State have had the opportunity to take nationally available language proficiency tests to demonstrate their ability to read, write, listen, and speak in a language other than English. They can potentially earn from 1 to 4 high school competency-based credits in a world language. We are now seeing the impact of this change in at least two ways. First, languages such as Vietnamese, which were not taught in Washington schools now have students who have earned credit in them. Second, students in various places in the state may be tested in languages that are not taught in their schools and in this way, those languages now "appear" in the county maps.
