Dear Fellow Coordinators and LOTE Teachers,

Please let me know if your district has adopted the combining of LOTE 
credits to satisfy the foreign language graduation requirement.  In other 
words, is the following scenario permissible in your district?

Spanish I fall semester grade = 70
Spanish I spring semester grade = 80
Total of 1.0 LOTE credit

Spanish II fall semester grade = 69
Spanish II spring semester grade = 74
Total of .5 LOTE credit

Spanish III fall semester grade = 70
Spanish III spring semester grade = 69
Total of .5 LOTE credit

Grand total of 2.0 LOTE credits...enough to satisfy the recommended plan 
for graduation.  (Or for Foundations when HB 5 goes into effect)
In AISD, we do not average grades for the year, they are calculated per 

Would love to hear from someone in similar situations and how this is or 
is not working for them.  :) 
Thanks so much for your time!
