SB35 Sponsored by Representative Joanna King.   Provisions in this bill require that the State Board of Education (State Board) adopts a curriculum which ensures personal financial responsibility is taught to Indiana public high school students, beginning with the 2027 graduation cohort. [The 2027 graduation cohort consists of Indiana high school students who enter grade 9 beginning with the 2023-2024 school year. These students are expected to graduate at the end of the 2026-2027 school year.] If the personal financial responsibility course is taught as a separate subject, the course will qualify as a mathematics credit for an alternative diploma.

The bill also provides that public schools will certify to the Department of Education (DOE) that students beginning with the 2027 graduation cohort have completed the personal financial responsibility requirements as described within this bill before these students may graduate.
