    Remember that enrolling in a DE class is the responsibility of the STUDENT.  We cannot enroll students in a community college course.  The community colleges offer Zoom help sessions.  We can only offer guidance and limited support.  Reach out to Diana Dysthe for assistance at dianadysthe@burbankusd.org.

    Finance 008:  Recommended for 11th & 12th graders only. This course is an introduction to the concepts and tools necessary for the responsible allocation of personal resources. Emphasis is on the significant financial decisions facing each household during its life cycle, including budgeting, record keeping, consumer purchases, credit, home ownership, insurance, investing, retirement, and estate planning. Students should be at the point where they have experience with earning and spending money. This course is rigorous but will teach you extremely valuable life skills. Every single person will make money and need to support themselves.  This class is so important for your financial success.  Don't hesitate.  ALL NAF ACADEMIES should consider this class - it's NOT just for business academy students.
