    1. ACCOUNTING 1 (P)
     
    Prerequisite(s): Algebra 1 and Business Technology Core with a grade of “C” or better. The focus of Accounting I is to introduce students to the fundamental concepts of accounting—the language of business. Students will understand the basic accounting principles and procedures affecting today’s businesses. They are expected to record, analyze, and interpret accounting data for a service business organized as a sole proprietorship and merchandising business organized as a partnership and a corporation. They will work with journals, ledgers, financial reports, and payroll records. Throughout the course, students will learn how to make connections between accounting data and sound business decisions. In addition, students will be exposed to financial literacy through participation in the Stock Market Game and various lessons from the National Endowment for Financial (NEFE) High School Financial Planning Program.
