Drew Crismon, Instructor
Personal Finance (10,11,12) is a required course for graduation. The ability to
understand and manage personal finance is key to one’s future financial success. This
one semester course is based on the Missouri Personal Finance Competencies and
presents essential knowledge and skills necessary to make informed decisions about
real world financial issues. Enrollment in this course exempts students from
having to take the Missouri Personal Finance Competencies Exam. Since future
earning potential is strongly correlated to occupational options, students in this course
will learn to navigate Family Connect to help them generate a post-high school
academic and career plan. The course will then focus on job interview skills, pay stub
and benefits analysis, how to manage a budget, and make wise spending decisions.
Students will also develop a savings and investment plan along with understanding
credit and loan options. The ultimate goal of the course is to have students be better
prepared to achieve personal financial success.
