Applications sought for Financial Literacy standards committees


(Frankfort, KY) – Applications are being accepted for the Financial Literacy Standards Review and Development Committees (RDCs) and Advisory Panels (APs).

Starting with freshmen entering high school in the 2020-2021 school year, House Bill 132 (2018) calls for students to complete one or more courses or programs that meet financial literacy standards prior to graduation.

The Kentucky Department of Education is seeking interested high school educators, postsecondary educators and community stakeholders interested in financial literacy to develop the standards and participate in the work. Applicants will be required to meet in Frankfort for three to five days during the 2018-2019 school year.

Selected team members will receive reimbursement for travel expenses. Substitute teacher expenses will be reimbursed to the teacher’s school district.

The online application will be posted for 30 days. Applications will be accepted through Oct. 11. Selected team members will be notified shortly after that.

Contact Nancy Graham or Connie Witt in the Office of Career and Technical Education at the Kentucky Department of Education with any questions.
