League celebrates financial literacy month

Published by: Jared Weiser

April 5, 2022 | Public Awareness

April is National Financial Literacy Month and each year, its celebration helps remind parents, educators, and financial services providers about the importance of teaching financial education at home and in the classroom. To help solve the state’s financial literacy gaps and foster better financial awareness, the League supported Senate Bill 1, which established a financial education mandate in all Ohio high schools. This requirement goes into effect for students entering ninth grade in the 2022-2023 school year. The League is currently working with state and education community stakeholders to learn best practices for credit unions to partner with local school districts to implement the requirements in Senate Bill 1. We’ll keep you and your credit union informed through an upcoming webinar that will provide comprehensive information about how credit unions can remain financial literacy leaders in Ohio schools.

For more information on Senate Bill 1 or how your credit union can connect with local schools, please contact Legislative Affairs Director Jared Weiser.
