Improving Educational Options
10/25/2017
The House approved two proposals this week to improve educational options for students.

House Bill 429 would allow public school students who earn credit for a course in personal financial literacy to use that credit to satisfy a graduation credit requirement in social studies, math or consumer science. This would help encourage students to acquire the knowledge necessary to make wise financial choices as adults.

The second measure, House Bill 1653, would allow students pursuing postsecondary education online to receive financial aid. Currently, this is operated as a pilot program, which was created by Act 59 of 2013, for students who take more than 50 percent of their credits online from a college or university headquartered and located in the Commonwealth. During the 2014-15 grant year, more than 5,900 students received grant awards, which totaled $8.52 million because of the pilot program.

Both bills now head to the Senate for consideration.
