The financial literacy classes will be lead and taught by the business department teachers

After much deliberation and consideration with the Iowa core education, administration decided to add financial literacy classes into the mandatory curriculum, eventually replacing the current required technology credit. This would mean that sophomores who have otherwise taken a technology credit will now be required to take a financial literacy class to fulfill their graduation requirements. “We’ll be as flexible as possible with those juniors (or) would-be juniors in working with their schedules,” Woods said.

Iowa requires that students have access to financial literacy standards, similar to making economics a required course.
