How can parents be involved?

Finding opportunities early, often and consistently to teach children about money will provide the greatest advantage for financial stability as they grow and mature.  Children learn about money from many sources, but multiple studies have shown that parental modeling has the greatest influence.

The Passport program provides an opportunity for direct parent/guardian involvement, as emphasized in the Utah State Board of Education Resolution on Parental Involvement.  In order to receive the Financial and Economic Education Passport Certificate, students must complete an at-home activity requiring parent/guardian participation. Your partnership is essential.
