Out with the Old; In with the New HSFPP Edition 9

New HSFPP Curriculum Release Delayed

The curriculum update release of the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP®) has been delayed.

Even though HSFPP Edition 9 is not yet ready for delivery, the current HSFPP Edition 8 ©2013-2016 remains a high-quality, relevant resource. Read the results from the 2018 program evaluation.

We are just as eager for the release of HSFPP Edition 9, and we will continue to update you on its status with announcements online and in our monthly newsletter

Anticipated Rollout Process

Rest assured, when HSFPP Edition 9 is available there will be plenty of time to become acquainted with the updated curriculum. To ease the transition process, instructors will continue to have full access to HSFPP Edition 8 ©2013-2016, while reviewing and becoming familiar with the new program.

This access will allow you to explore the updated curriculum so that you don’t miss a beat when teaching your course.

Printed Student Booklets

Once available, instructors will be able to choose to order the updated HSFPP Edition 9 student guide booklets and/or the retiring HSFPP Edition 8 ©2013-2016. The outdated printed student guide booklets will be available for order throughout the 2019-2020 school year until NEFE runs out of inventory.

Online Curriculum Materials

When HSFPP Edition 9 is released, the instructional materials download page will feature the new curriculum. The retiring HSFPP Edition 8 ©2013-2016 will be archived online through the 2019-2020 school year.
