A local financial institution has partnered with Hardin County Schools for financial literacy.
This fall, fifth grade students across the Hardin County School system will take part in financial literacy classes through Abound Credit Union. The financial institute implemented it’s services in the spring through online activities and assignments. Officials within the district say the the program for 5th graders is helpful, considering that financial education is already required for students as they continue on with their education, as well as already being required at the high school level.
The pilot program, which took place this past spring, involved only 3 schools.
