Treasurer Mandel Announces Teacher Academy 2011 Schedule
                                                                  
Innovative Partnership Offers Teachers Financial Education Resources


COLUMBUS – State Treasurer of Ohio Josh Mandel today announced the 2011 schedule for the Ohio Treasury’s Teacher Academy, an innovative partnership that provides teachers with training and resources for financial education courses.  Teacher Academy is a highly successful two-day program held throughout the summer and is offered in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Council on Economic Education.  View information on courses and registration here.

“Teacher Academy empowers teachers with financial education resources to teach students the real-world money management skills they will need to be successful after graduation,” said Treasurer Mandel.  “This is a great partnership that offers training and personal finance materials to teachers so that school districts can include financial education in high school curriculum.”


This annual program provides workshops focused on providing teachers with financial education materials and resources, along with instruction on how to engage and motivate students with an interactive curriculum.  More than 1,100 teachers have participated in these workshops since 2007. 
This well-developed program utilizes public and corporate participation and support from school districts, and offers summer courses for teachers at state colleges and education centers, as well as offering online learning options


The personal finance courses offered to teachers in 2011 include:
•    Decision Making and Money;
•    Career Choices and Income;
•    Getting Your Money’s Worth;
•    Wealth Creation and Investing;
•    Protecting Yourself: Risk and Insurance; and
•    Personal Finance Courses for All Grade Levels.


Amended Substitute Senate Bill 311 requires Ohio schools to implement personal financial education into high school curricula, beginning in the school year of 2010 for the class of 2014.  The Teacher Academy will enable schools to offer financial education that is meaningful and compliant with the statute. 


Information on Teacher Academy locations, courses and registration can be found here or please visit www.OhioTreasurer.gov for more information on the Ohio Treasury.
