Treasurer Josh Mandel Recognizes Ashtabula School, Community Leaders for Financial Wellness Efforts

Press Release - Ohio Treasurer's Office

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Treasurer’s office visited Geneva High School in Ashtabula County today to recognize its commitment to the advancement of financial literacy education as part of April National Financial Literacy Month.  This initiative is part of Treasurer Josh Mandel’s ‘Financial EDge’ financial literacy initiative and continuing efforts to raise awareness on the importance of financial wellness by providing tools and resources to help citizens across Ohio make sound financial decisions.

The Treasurer’s Financial EDge initiative offers a suite of personal finance tools in support of Ohio’s parents, educators and students.  This toolkit includes a wide variety of print and online materials in partnership with the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) and the EverFi Financial Literacy Technology Platform.

In addition to Geneva High School, the Treasurer’s office recognized Northwest Savings Bank for sponsoring the EverFi platform and Geneva High School teacher David Yost for teaching the curriculum. 

“Ohio schools and communities play a crucial role in helping students lay the foundation for a successful financial future,” said Treasurer Mandel.  “I salute these leaders who are helping build a stronger Ohio by providing students the resources needed to positively contribute to Ohio’s economic future.”

Recent legislation requires financial literacy to be taught in schools throughout Ohio.  Senate Bill 311, which passed the Ohio General Assembly and was signed into law in 2007, requires Ohio schools to integrate the study of economics and financial literacy into one or more existing social studies credits so that every high school student receives financial instruction.  These new requirements became effective with the graduating class of 2014.

The Ohio Treasurer’s Financial EDge initiative leverages technology and public-private partnerships to assist teachers in meeting these financial education requirements and provides free financial education tools to parents, educators and students.

This effort is part of the Ohio Treasurer’s office ongoing commitment to providing financial literacy resources to all Ohioans.
