Native Speakers in Henry County Schools
“Proficiency in a World Language adds a competitive advantage in all career fields”
In an effort to provide Henry County Schools’ Native Speakers of languages other than English with Personalized Learning in the World Languages Program, the opportunity to enhance their language skills, and to develop their full potential as learners, these students will “be considered to have met the foreign language expectation by exercising the credit in lieu of enrollment option if they are proficient in their native language” as recommended by the Georgia Department of Education.
In addition to facilitating the credit in lieu of enrollment option, the Henry County Schools World Languages Department also recommends and encourages Native Speakers of languages other than English to continue their World Language education by pursuing a language pathway in their native language which will help obtain the highest levels of proficiency in their native language. Obtaining higher levels of proficiency in more than one language will lead students to earn the Seal of Biliteracy and the International Skills Diploma Seal, both seals sought after by colleges and the workforce nationwide.Please visit the following link for the World Languages Program Instructional Recommendations for Native Speakers of languages other than English:
