road mapThe Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and the Bulgarian school of Seattle offer a program which aims to encourage the preservation of the Bulgarian language in the family, providing opportunity for Bulgarian speaking students to receive core subject credits required for high school graduation in the United States. Many schools in Washington state seek to prepare their students for the coming globalization by developing skills to communicate both in English and in other languages (in particular Bulgarian). The program Road Map of World Languages is a way to get credit for proficiency in the Bulgarian language.

Тhe School Districts in Washington State recommend that all students study a world language. The mission is to equip students with the skills to communicate effectively across multiple cultures. Students use the world language to explore global challenges and analyze possible solutions. Most colleges and universities require at least two years of study of one world language. However, competitive schools may require more than two years of study. Therefore completing a long sequence of Bulgarian language study can give students an advantage in college admissions.

Competency based credits may be earned for World Language. A maximum of 4 World Language credits may be awarded through OSPI’s Competency Based Credit testing process. 

In order to earn credits, students will demonstrate proficiency on a specific assessment, depending upon the language. These assessments are aligned with the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines. For Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Chinese students may take the Standards-based Measurement of Proficiency (STAMP) test. Most other languages, like the Bulgarian language may be assessed using the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview (COPI) and Writing Proficiency Test (WPT). Students may be awarded one or more credits based on their demonstrated proficiency according to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines as follows: 

• Novice Mid- 1 credit
• Novice High- 2 credits
• Intermediate Low- 3 credits

• Intermediate Mid- 4 credits

Since Bulgarian students may demonstrate varied levels of proficiency across skills, credits will be awarded based on the lowest common level of proficiency demonstrated across skill areas.
