(View Complete Item Description)

Washington’s Basic Education Act requires that school districts provide opportunities for every student to “understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.” Legislative mandates include: RCW 28A.655.070: The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) will “develop and periodically revise essential academic learning requirements that identify the knowledge and skills all public school students need to know and be able to do.” RCW 28A.300.460 (2)(d): The Financial Education Public Private Partnership will “work with the office of the superintendent to integrate financial education skills and content knowledge into the state learning standards.” RCW 28A.300.462: School districts are encouraged to “voluntarily adopt the jumpstart coalition national standards in K-12 personal financial education and provide students with an opportunity to master the standards.” The Financial Education Public-Private Partnership, The Center for Economic and Financial Education at Western Washington University, the Council for Economic Education, and OSPI Learning and Teaching and Career and College Readiness will collaborate on implementing these mandates
