Financial Education/Common Core State Standards Workgroup
We encourage CTE teachers and directors to apply.
The Financial Education Public-Private Partnership (FEPPP) and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction are seeking applicants to be part of a Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M) and financial education workgroup to be held on August 2 in the Seattle area. Ten Washington State educators will be selected to participate.
This workgroup will identify concepts that intersect with both the CCSS-M and financial literacy. The end goal of this workgroup will be to revise existing classroom-based tasks that support both financial education and the implementation of the CCSS-M. The focus for this workgroup will be secondary mathematics (6-12).
Workgroup members will meet from 9 AM - 4 PM on August 2 and attend one electronic meeting (date to determined later). All expenses for travel, lodging and meals will be provided within state guidelines for this event. Participants will receive a stipend of $150 for the work that will be accomplished on August 2 as well as the electronic meeting.
The application forms are available online at: http://ospi.befd99692d69.sgizmo.com/s3/
Application forms are due by close of business on June 29, 2012. All selected nominees will be notified by July 6, 2012.
