9.1 Personal Financial Literacy

To support the path towards postsecondary success, students require opportunities to understand and develop both career awareness and personal financial literacy. Standard 9.1 Personal Financial Literacy outlines the important fiscal knowledge, habits, and skills that must be mastered in order for students to make informed decisions about personal finance. Financial literacy is an integral component of a student's college and career readiness, enabling students to achieve fulfilling, financially secure and successful lives. In meeting these expectations, New Jersey students will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to not only achieve personal success, but also find and maintain financial wellness.
