Does Spanish have to be for high school credit?
Yes. If students take 8th grade Spanish they will receive credit and a grade on the transcript for Spanish 1. There is not an option to take the class without getting high school credit. However, because Spanish is an elective, there is an option to take the course as a Pass//No Pass course. This means the student would still get the credit, but the grade would not impact the high school GPA. For this option, see the school counselor.
