Treasurer Mandel recognizes RVHS teacher for financial literacy efforts

| November 3, 2014

WARSAW – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office visited River View High School on Wednesday, Oct. 29 to recognize Karin Moran for her efforts to promote financial literacy. The Ohio Treasurer’s office has been partnering with schools across Ohio to provide free resources to help them comply with new financial education requirements.

As part of this effort, a regional representative from the Ohio Treasurer’s office presented a proclamation to Moran who has been working to educate her students on the importance of smart money choices.

“Whether students go to college, join the military or enter the workforce, understanding money management skills will help them build a solid foundation for the rest of their lives,” said Treasurer Mandel.

In 2013, Treasurer Mandel launched a new effort called Financial EDge. Through Financial EDge, the Ohio Treasurer’s office provides free resources to schools to help them comply with new financial education high school graduation requirements that became effective with the graduating class of 2014. These financial education graduation requirements were included in SB 311, which passed the Ohio General Assembly and was signed into law on Jan.  3, 2007. Under this law Ohio high schools are now required to provide instruction in financial education, though districts and teachers have flexibility as to how they incorporate these subjects into their curriculum. The Treasurer’s Financial EDge initiative aims to provide a suite of free resources to assist teachers in meeting financial education requirements.
