NEFE’s High School Financial Planning Program Updates Program Website

The High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) recently updated its website, adding new features and improving the online experience for educators, parents and learners.

New Features

  • Instructors now can share student lessons and resources using Google Classroom.

  • Instructors can bookmark lessons and resources for easy retrieval on their personal My HSFPP page linked to their user profile.

  • Individual lesson pages provide all learner handouts and related resources.

  • Use the Resource Library to enhance learning. Filter resources by audience, financial topic or resource type.

  • More parent resources available, including “Taking It Home” activities and conversation starters to continue learning beyond the classroom.

  • The interactive Budget Wizard walks learners through the steps of making a budget that works for them and saves the budget for later comparisons with actual amounts earned, spent and saved.

Improved Features

  • Downloading the comprehensive curriculum is now easier and more efficient. Everything instructors need to teach the curriculum is immediately available online.

  • Requesting free printed materials is simplified. Support the online instructional curriculum with student guide booklets, participant certificates and an instructor starter kit.

  • Learner materials now available to students without requiring a student account.

NEFE’s HSFPP is a turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills that are relevant to the lives of teens. The program is intended for in-person teaching and works well in classrooms, workshops and one-on-one situations. Backed by extensive research, developed by educators and trusted experts, and independently evaluated, the HSFPP’s curriculum is proven effective.

“For more than 35 years the High School Financial Planning Program has built a strong reputation for quality education standards and curriculum,” says Susan Sharkey, HSFPP’s senior director. “This latest website debuts several new features, including an exciting new brand identity that represents our program’s evolution over time.”

The HSFPP’s plan-driven approach doesn’t just teach information or show students how to manage a financial task—it guides them to do it for themselves so they can apply financial decisions to their own lives and return in the future to do it again successfully.

As a result, HSFPP students are better at demonstrating and forming positive behaviors, and have greater average gains in confidence, than those who take other financial education courses based solely on knowledge and literacy. “As the HSFPP continues to serve approximately 35,000 educators a year, we will strive to provide the resources they need to be successful in the classroom,” Sharkey adds.
