Welcome to Online Financial Literacy!
The online section of Financial Literacy this summer that will be running from June 27th until August 19th. The successful completion of Financial Literacy is a state-mandated graduation requirement; this online class will allow you to meet that requirement while not impacting your traditional school schedule. The course will be taught by current Washington Township teachers utilizing the Blackboard learning environment.
Since all of the coursework will be completed online, every student must have a reliable Internet connection. The course will run inside an Internet browser so special software is not required, but the Internet browser on your computer should be updated to the latest version available. In addition, I am requiring you to type all of your assignments in Word and SAVE the files to upload them to Blackboard. While the coursework will be completed online, you will still be required to come to the school to take your midterm and final exam in the high school building. Since we are asking you to come to school to take those exams, multiple days and times will be offered so that you can find a time that fits into your schedule. Days and times will be announced online when they are made official.
You have been enrolled automatically into the course in Blackboard by the Guidance Department. You can access the class at wtps.blackboard.com using the user name and password that you would use to log into a school computer. Students should be able to see their summer course under the “CLASSES” section.
As always please keep an open line of communication with your teacher so that they are aware of any problems that you may be having with the course work or the online format and can assist you in finding a solution. We hope that this experience more than satisfies a graduation requirement, we hope that you are able to acquire key financial and technological tools to help you be successful in your future endeavors.
All work will be completed on Blackboard and be accessed at wtps.blackboard.com
