Seaford High School students recently earned recognition for financial literacy.

The school was one of 10 Nassau County schools to be named a Blue Star School for high student achievement, school officials said.

The honor was given by Working in Support of Education, a non profit organization that gives a financial literacy certification test. If a school has 10 or more students achieve a 75 percent passing rate on the test, to receive the certification.

Seaford has now earned the certification five years in a row and Social Studies teacher Scott Gilbert earned a Gold Star teacher rating for having 96 percent of his students pass the  test.

"If a school has 10 or more students achieve a 75 percent passing rate on the test, to receive the certification". That's professional journalism now? Shameful. Anyway, congrats to the kids and teachers

The students earned the award FOR the school. Not exactly what the title of this article is stating. Congratulations to both the teacher and the students who worked hard to achieve this accomplishment. Perhaps the BOE should have these students review and make recommendations and INCLUDE them in the SD Budget development process. They might have not only a unbiased fresh perspective to offer but perhaps will give students some actual insight to the financial investment this community has in education.
