Grants of up to $50,000 to Massachusetts local educational agencies to provide financial education programs in K-12 schools. Funding is intended for the development and implementation of financial literacy curriculum and learning experiences. The purpose of the program is to equip students with the necessary skills to be informed and productive participants in society.
LEAs may integrate financial literacy across grades K–12 in a variety of subjects such as mathematics, history and social science, technology, advisory, or business. At the high school level, the Standards for Personal Financial Literacy enumerated in the 2018 History and Social Science Curriculum Framework may be used as a stand-alone course or incorporated into a variety of subjects (page 173).
Grants will support professional learning and the development and or/selection of materials and curriculum that equip teachers to fully and effectively implement the personal financial literacy standards. The intended outcomes of this grant are for districts to deepen their understanding of the standards, adopt high-quality standards-aligned curricular materials, and provide meaningful learning experiences for students relating to financial literacy.
