More heritage languages added to credit for examination

Dallas ISD has added several languages to the list for which students are able to receive required Language Other Than English graduation credits, LOTE 4 Endorsements and “Seals of Biliteracy.”

The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees recently approved new assessments for credit by examination for World Languages. Until now, only students who were fluent in Spanish had been able to take advantage of the opportunity to receive credit by taking the assessment. The additional languages are:

  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Japanese
  • Portuguese
  • Sudanese
  • Swahili

Until now, only 222 students have taken advantage of this new exam, but hundreds more are expected to take advantage of the opportunity to earn these credits for graduation by the end of the school year. For more information about this new opportunity, contact Amy Anderton, director of World Languages, at
