Jamestown Named a Blue Star School in Financial Literacy

Jamestown’s CTE department has earned a Blue Star for the 2016-2017 school year. In order to do so, a school, testing more than ten students, must have achieved a 80% passing rate on our Financial Literacy Certification Test and have EITHER a majority of students on a given grade level take the Test OR have the students who took it achieve an average score of 85% or higher.

We are truly proud of our students’ accomplishment. We are equally proud of our teachers who helped them become Certified Financially Literate™.
