History

The Idaho Council on Economic Education (ICEE) operates out of the Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies in the College of Education at Boise State University. Since 1971, ICEE has been providing training, materials, professional development, and hands-on student academic programs to K – 12 teachers and students.

Mission/Vision

Mission: To promote, support, and advocate for economics and financial literacy education in Idaho.

The Council supports this mission by providing teachers with access to training and resources to implement innovative, effective classroom practices and activities that enhance their student’s understanding of financial and economic literacy.

Vision: Every Idaho student has the economic and financial education that will change the way they see the world and empower them to make financial decisions that impact their success.

Values: Our role is to work together as team — centered around these common values — to support the mission of the Idaho Council on Economic Education: collaboration, communication, honesty, mutual support, accountability, quality, and efficiency.

“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

– Andrew Carnegie

We will accomplish our mission, vision, and values through:

  • Relationships – Establish strong relationships with educators, school districts, the Idaho State Department of Education, and industry partners.
  • Relevancy – Ensure economics and financial literacy programs reflect needs of Idaho teachers. Help teachers meet standards at all grade levels, and provide support or professional development to grow skills beyond requirements.
  • Program Growth – Build and grow programs that increase the scope of the Council’s role and impact.
  • Quality – Ensure programs and content put out by the Council are of the highest quality and standards.
