    The Future-Ready Core Course of Study for students entering ninth grade for the first in 2014 - 2015 and beyond includes information about meeting this requirement in the Elective credits section (GRAD-004).

    In June 2007, the State Board of Education took action on two policies that affect high school graduation requirements. The first is that middle school students in grades 6-8, beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, may earn high school credit for foreign language courses if the course meets the Standard Course of Study (CCRE-001). The second change is that a Standard Course of Study for American Sign Language (ASL) was added to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, World Languages (SCOS-009).
    In September 2010, the State Board of Education adopted the North Carolina World Language Essential Standards (WLES), which were implemented starting in the 2012 - 2013 school year (SCOS-009). These proficiency-based standards have exit proficiency expectations or student outcomes for each program and/or course, and the outcomes are based on research and feedback from the field that show what students should know and be able to do when they hear, speak, read, or write the language. The outcomes are also adjusted for different developmental levels and language types to address students of any age learning any language.

    In January 2015, the State Board of Education approved the Global Languages Endorsement, North Carolina's Seal of Biliteracy, and one of five High School Diploma Endorsements that a student might earn (GRAD-007). The purpose is to provide a way for students to show their multiliteracy in English and at least one World Language. Students may add as many World Languages for which they qualify to a Global Languages Endorsement on their diploma. The Global Languages Endorsement has been available since the 2014 - 2015 school year.
    Also, the North Carolina Graduation Project requirements allow a student to choose to do all or part of the project in a language other than English. Chapter 3 of the Implementation Guide has a section dedicated to this aspect of the project, and includes information on using a second (foreign) language or a heritage (native) language.
