Junior Achievement’s Finance Park will be coming to the Irving ISD on Monday, February 27. At 10:30 a.m. a ribbon cutting is scheduled and MacArthur High School students will be the first to experience Finance Park in its new location at Austin Middle School.
Finance Part is where students immerse themselves in a reality-based decision-making process addressing aspects of individual and family budgeting, including housing, transportation, food, utilities, health care, investments, philanthropy, and banking. The on-site activities are designed to allow students the opportunity to “put into action” what they have learned in the classroom and to understand the basic steps of maintaining a realistic personal budget.
