YCSD Students Demonstrate Financial Literacy

Posted On: Thursday, January 12, 2023

Grafton, Tabb and York High Schools have earned recognition as Working in Support of Education (W!se) Financial Literacy Blue Star Schools for the 2021-22 school year for outstanding student performance on the W!se Financial Literacy Certification Test.

To receive this distinction, a school testing more than ten students must achieve an 80% passing rate on the W!se Financial Literacy Certification Test. Additionally, the school must have either a majority of students in a given grade level take the test, or have the students who took the test achieve a minimum average score of 85%.

Administered as part of W!se's Financial Literacy Certification program, this national standardized test is administered to students who complete a course or unit on personal finance. Students who pass the test become Certified Financially LiterateTM and earn a W!se CFLTM, demonstrating that they have developed sound financial knowledge and skills.

Five division teachers are recognized as W!SE Financial Literacy Gold Star Teachers: Antoinette Burnett, Janet Howard, Gordon Chai, Maggie Kowalski, and Brian McGovern. To be considered for the Gold Star award, a teacher must achieve a 93% pass rate in at least one of their classes on either the Fall or Spring W!SE Financial Literacy Certification Test.
