The California Financial Curriculum Council (CFCC)
was created to evaluate, create and continuously enhance financial literacy standards and community program implementations.
Financial literacy standards and strategies:
Continue to monitor and teach ethical standards and codes of conduct to advance professionalism and education in personal finance.
Financial Integration Study:
Conduct qualitative and quantitative research so that community organizations, policy makers and financial institutions better understand the challenges and opportunities faced by under- banked communities. Thus providing a platform for financial literacy standards to continuously improve.
Organize and guide CAFF in:
- Developing a methodology for conducting peer review of curriculum implemented amongst diverse community sub-groups.
- Aggregating existing financial literacy standards, lesson plans and implementations.
- Analyzing qualitative data generated from CAFF’s field observations.
- Reviewing field reports and support CAFF’s financial literacy standards and certification model.
- Developing a quantitative statewide survey to implement on all culturally similar community sub-groups.
- Reviewing the Final Working Paper which will summarize findings and the statewide survey.
