All Grade 7 students will spend three weeks in their social studies class learning important principles of financial literacy like saving, investing and budgeting. Their learning culminates in a field trip to Finance Park Montgomery to put into practice what they learned through a real-life simulation in which they must shop for what they need to live and work but stay within their budget. Finance Park is located at the new Edison High School of Technology where students will also learn about career programs of study available in high schools around the county.
Parent and Community Volunteers are an essential component of the Finance Park experience. Each school must recruit up to 20 volunteers for each day they attend Finance Park.
