Wisconsin Standards for Personal Financial Literacy

Cover for Wisconsin Standards for Personal Financial LiteracyThe Wisconsin Standards for Personal Financial Literacy cross all grade levels and disciplines. A comprehensive, developmentally appropriate pre-kindergarten through grade 12 program can promote personal financial literacy throughout numerous curricular areas.

Updated in June 2020, the standards include six strands:

  • financial mindset
  • education and employment
  • money management
  • saving and investing
  • credit and debt
  • risk management and insurance

The addition of the financial mindset strand sets Wisconsin apart from other state and national personal financial literacy standards. It addresses mental habits needed to address financial decisions successfully.

The standards are intended to help schools and educators at all grade levels to develop programs that provide the knowledge and skills to establish sound financial habits.
