• Delaware K-12 Financial Literacy Standards

    A Financial Literacy Task Force established by House Joint Resolution 4 recommended that DDOE develop K-12 state standards for Financial Literacy

  • Introduction to the Delaware Financial Literacy Standards

    In January 2018, the State Board of Education approved new K-12 Financial Literacy Standards .  New standards will ensure that students have access to resources and instruction that help them set financial goals, participate in financial planning, and make sound financial decisions. 

    Next Steps

    • DOE will consult with and solicit feedback from district and school leaders.
    • A timeline for implementation of these standards will be forthcoming once feedback from districts/school have been collected.
    • In support of these new standards, DOE will work with the University of Delaware’s Center for Economic Education & Entrepreneurship to develop training for teachers, curriculum resources, and models of implementation.
