NN teachers earn recognition in Financial Literacy Education


Posted: November 8, 2018

Woodside High School and Warwick High School have been named 2017-2018 W!SE Blue Star Schools for their students' performance on the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification Test. The national certification test is given to high school students upon completion of the personal finance course. To earn the Blue Star designation, students attending the school must achieve an 80% pass rate on the test with either a majority of students at a given grade level taking the test or an average score of 85% or higher by students who take the test.

Twelve NNPS career and technical education teachers also earned recognition for their students' successful performance on the Financial Literacy Certification Test. Lisa McAlister and Linda Richardson (retired) (Denbigh High); Tiffanie Smith (Heritage High); Adrienne Caldwell and Diane Zawadski (Menchville High); Michael Bellamy, Kimberly Grant, Lisa Jones and Reginald Neely (Warwick High); and Stephen Brown, Jo Ella Evans and Tina Shorter (Woodside High) were named W!SE Gold Star teachers.

To receive the Gold Star Award, a teacher must achieve a 93% pass rate on the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification test in at least one of their classes.
