Dear Curriculum Directors and Elementary School Principals:

For the past four years, we have worked with Utah schools to distribute information about financial literacy and saving for higher education. We look forward to working with your district again this year to reach even more parents and guardians with this important information.

Utah law requires that parents or guardians of kindergarten students be given a financial and economic literacy "passport," as well as information about higher education savings options, including information about the Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP).

Your elementary schools will receive the financial literacy passport and UESP brochures in
August 2010.  Please ask your schools to distribute this information in their registration packets. UESP will provide enough brochures so you can distribute them to not only your kindergarteners but to all students in their registration information.

The financial literacy passport and a sample of the 2009 UESP school brochure are attached. If you have questions about UESP, please call Diane Johnson, Outreach Manager, at 800-418-2551.  If you have questions about the financial and economic literacy passport, please call Julie Felshaw at the Utah State Office of Education at 801-538-7859.

Thank you for all you do to enhance the education of Utah students and for your help in spreading the word about saving for higher education.
