New approach to personal finance tries to empower Valley View students
BOLINGBROOK – Valley View School District has changed the way teachers instruct students about personal finance.
“Our former program wasn’t rigorous enough and it wasn’t as current as it needed to be,” said Tammi Conn, Valley View’s Director of Career and Technical Education. “We need to keep current with the times by teaching our students how to safely use online banking for everything from paying bills to bank account reconciliation."
A required course for juniors and seniors at both Bolingbrook and Romeoville high schools, Personal Finance (formerly called Consumer Education) lasts one semester. In that semester, students will continue to learn how to budget; how to balance a checkbook; how to use a credit card; how to rent or buy an apartment, home or condo; and how to look for and buy a car.
