Financial education available for teachers in local, rural and distant communities.

As more learning resources move toward a fully-virtual experience, Economic Literacy Colorado (ELC) is expanding its virtual programming and outreach to offer more teachers in distant communities the tools for building financial literacy into the curriculum in classrooms across Colorado. With programs, classes and materials now available 100% online, ELC can provide educational credits to more Colorado teachers, as well as opportunities for aspiring learners to develop personal finance skills at home.

“I'm grateful that ELC took on the challenge of moving professional development to online venues,” said Sara Shackett, Lakewood High School social studies teacher. “The structures are very different, but the online trainings allow me to continue increasing my financial and economic content during this pandemic.”
