Middle Grades (7-8) Financial Literacy


State law 3313.6015 requires all public school districts, community schools and chartered nonprofit schools to adopt a formal Board Resolution and submit it to the Ohio Department of Education outlining how districts will meet the requirements by providing instruction in financial literacy in grade seven and/or eight.

Each district is required to send evidence of that formal resolution along with the plan for compliance and each time a district changes or updates how financial literacy instruction is provided to their students, they must re-submit the resolution.
