Financial Literacy

In June 2021, Rhode Island Governor McKee signed a law (RIGL 16-22-13) requiring the Council on Elementary and Secondary Education, in consultation with the RI Department of Education (RIDE), to develop and approve statewide academic standards for the instruction of consumer education in public high schools. The K-12 Council approved Rhode Island's updated Financial Literacy standards in December, 2021. This law also mandates that each LEA (Local Education Agency) offer a course aligned with the state standards and, beginning with the graduating class of 2024, that all students demonstrate proficiency in consumer education prior to graduating high school. 

This legislation helps ensure that every Rhode Islander graduates high school with an understanding of how to manage their personal finances. This can break cycles of poverty, and make sure that all families can benefit from our economy. RIDE has prepared a series of resources to support students, families, schools, and LEAs meet the requirements of this legislation.
