BusinessConnect Students Learn to Build a School Budget

BusinessConnect Students Learn to Build a School Budget
April 28, 2016 GWHS

BusinessConnect students were welcomed by Denver Public Schools’ Finance Department for a CareerX Job Exploration Event on Tuesday. ¬ The event started with¬ students learning that the number one skill DPS Finance looks for in job candidates is Critical Thinking. BusinessConnect students were then split up into teams and¬ worked together on¬ the identical¬ budgeting exercise that potential job candidates are required to complete for an interview. ¬ Once students were equipped with some basic budgeting skills, they were then tasked with creating a school budget by making deductions, additions and neutral decisions to bring about positive results for the school population. ¬ Everyone was highly engaged and walked away with a better understanding of how difficult it is to make a good budget. ¬ If you have any questions about this CareerX Event, please contact Gideon Geisel, Pathway Director at gideon_geisel@dpsk12.org
