Rib Lake School District - Recipient of $10,000 Financial Literacy Grant
Financial Literacy Innovation grants were awarded to three Wisconsin schools, seven school districts, and one cooperative educational service agency (CESA) working with multiple districts. Among the recipients, the Rib Lake School District was awarded $10,000.
The Financial Literacy Innovation grant program supports teachers and schools as they create innovative, sustainable financial literacy programs and events, with a specific emphasis on student loan debt. Wisconsin is the first state in the nation to develop content and performance standards to define what students should know about financial literacy.
“Thank you to educators who took the time to craft applications aimed at helping their kids learn financial literacy,” State Superintendent Tony Evers said. “Being introduced to personal finance during K-12 helps our students become prepared citizens and gives them the ability to succeed in the next phases of their life, no matter what they choose.” Click here for more information.
