CHS Business Department teachers Andy Shupe and Rob Russo offered students the opportunity to choose a career and then using the monthly salary choose from a multitude of basic and discretionary expenses. The student goal was to recognize the magnitude of expenses such as housing, food, transportation, student loans, savings, cell phone and cable/internet bills. By choosing from basic, medium and premium level of services, students calculated cost of living then determined what discretionary items they could access such as travel, owning a pet etc. Students found the exercise an eye-opening introduction to living expenses when entering their career.
