ACT 480 Compliance Training
Open to teachers 9-12.
Act 480, also known as the Personal Finance and Job Readiness Act, calls for the implementation of mandated personal and family finance standards into the curriculum for public high school students in grades 10, 11 or 12, starting with the 2018-19 school year. Economics Arkansas has taken on a lead role in developing a number of Professional Development (PD) workshops and seminars to train high school teachers how to teach these standards.
If you have the opportunity to attend one of the Economics Arkansas Act 480 classes this summer, DO IT! I attended the class in Little Rock this week and it was full of knowledgeable presenters, and the toolkit they give you is out of this world. You’ll walk away with a semester of curriculum and other valuable learning tools. One of my favorite workshops all summer!
