Financial Literacy Standards – Office of the State Superintendent of Education

Email :40


On March 20, 2024, the State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to adopt financial literacy standards. These standards were developed by OSSE and are intended to be implemented as a standalone, elective course for high school students across the District. These standards include important financial knowledge and skills, including how individual financial circumstances are influenced by personal decisions and systemic factors. These standards will be implemented beginning in school year 2024-25.

Standards Development Process
The financial literacy standards were developed between June 2023 and March 2024. During the development process, OSSE worked with stakeholders to ensure that the standards reflected accurate content while also meeting the specific needs of DC students.
Timeline for Standards Development
The standards will be developed across the following timeline:
Stakeholder Engagement
During the draft development process, OSSE conducted extensive stakeholder engagement which included student focus groups, educator focus groups, general interest focus groups and a survey. Data collected from this engagement was leveraged in the development of the standards. Additionally, OSSE has identified local and national financial literacy experts who reviewed the draft standards and provided feedback.
