Next school year, students will have to have a financial literacy credit to graduate high school. Washington High School Principal Erik Buchholz explained at a recent school board meeting, that currently students need 56 credits to graduate and that will remain the same, just one of those credits will need to be financial literacy. He shared some of the topics that will be covered in the class, “Credit card information, studying how credit cards work, A to Z. Purchase of a house, A to Z. Purchase of a car, A to Z. College costs, A to Z. Balancing bank accounts, A to Z.” It means students will take one less elective course at Washington High School.
