Through a partnership with Tri-County Tech, the Osage Nation Education Department hosted a Feb. 9 “Smart Money Program” workshop teaching financial literacy essentials to Pawhuska High School juniors and seniors.

The participating students “received information about financial literacy to prepare them for the working world during this pilot program,” the Education Department said in a statement. “Nineteen participants enjoyed a free lunch and presentation that featured the history of money and proper budgeting skills.”

Headquartered in Bartlesville, Tri-County Tech is one of 29 technology centers in the state, serving residents throughout Washington, Nowata, and Osage counties, according to its website. Focused on various technical and career trades, Tri-County Tech serves high school and adult students with specialized career training in more than 30 instructional areas.

The statement also notes financial fitness is a component of the Oklahoma Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP) that prepares students for life after high school. Participating youth can use the Smart Money Program to achieve their goals.

According to the Oklahoma CareerTech website, the Individual Career and Academic Plan “is a document that will guide individuals through the coursework and activities for achieving personal career goals. An ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and post-secondary opportunities. With the support of adults, students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college ready.”

“The Osage Nation Education Department and Tri-County Tech are excited to continue their partnership with Pawhuska Public Schools,” the statement said. “The second course is scheduled for April 27, 2022. The goal is to include additional school districts in Osage County during the next school year.”
