California Council on Economic Education to Increase Financial Literacy Among Students and Families

on .

Los Angeles Unified has announced plans to partner with the California Council on Economic Education (CCEE) and City National Bank to provide high school seniors and families greater access to financial literacy education. CCEE will provide free financial literacy workshops for LAUSD students and their families, thanks to a generous donation from CCEE Board Member, John Nickoll and the Nickoll Family Foundation. The workshops will complement a digital interactive tool from City National Bank that high school seniors can use to learn personal finance in the classroom. Lessons for both programs include how to apply for financial aid, establish credit, invest wisely and more.
