Personal Finance Classroom Assignments

The Missing Semester has proudly partnered with CFA Society Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, in the creation and implementation of an annual Act 48 Accredited Continuing Education Program for High School Educators.  As a component of the 2018 program, this portal was created as a means for educators to share and/or find successful classroom assignments. 

 

Thank you to the participating teachers and schools!   Assignments may be submitted at any time, and are encouraged to be shared and utilized.​​​​​​
