Understanding financial management concepts is an important life skill. Students will explore how individual choices
directly influence occupational goals and future earnings potential. A thorough understanding of financial concepts, with
practical application through activities and projects, will enable students to leave this course making informed personal
financial decisions leading to financial independence. Students will design personal and household budgets utilizing
checking and saving accounts, gain knowledge in debt and credit management, evaluate and understand insurance
and taxes, and compose a resume highlighting their current skills and experience. This step towards financial literacy
is the first step in creating a financially secure future. NOTE: High School Graduation Requirement.
