Financial Literacy Standards


It was recently brought to my attention that the Social Studies standards are being re-evaluated and it is proposed that Financial Literacy will be added to that curriculum. The final recommendation will take place in the spring. If you would like voice your opinion on Financial Literacy being moved to Social Studies standards you can go to the surveymonkey link below or one of the public forums listed below.
