Current juniors who want to be a TA or have an off-period next school year must complete their personal finance course by May 31. According to Roseville High School counselor Jason Bradley, the change spurs from other schools who have implemented this policy and have seen success.

“We were seeing numbers as low as 40 or so students that had passed the personal finance course at the beginning of their senior year,” Bradley said. “Other schools were in the 200-300s.”

The 2017-18 school year serves as a transition year in which current sophomores will need their personal finance course completed by Mar. 1 of their junior year to ensure that when they register for classes, they are eligible to be TA’s or have off-periods.

Junior Sara Whaley believes the new date will help some people to get their personal finance course done sooner, but will add unnecessary stress to juniors.

“We don’t really have time for it and a lot of us are already in extracurriculars,” Whaley said. “It’s kind of a lot to ask.”
