Drivers Education Information

  •  

    All driver education parent meetings and class room sessions have been cancelled for this week.

    The Behind wheel schedules: Instructors will contact parents about cancellations and re-scheduling on an individual basis as the continuation of driving schedules vary depending on the weather and road conditions before and after the storm.

    Once school resumes:

    1. Announcements will be made and updates posted to this page to address new dates for parent meetings and revised class schedules.
    2. Driving schedules will be handled individually by the instructor as driving appointments will take place as long as weather and road conditions allow.

     

    Driver's Education:

    • is a course that consists of 30 hours of classwork and 6 hours behind-the-wheel training.
    • is required for any person under the age of 18 desiring to receive a driver's license/learner's permit. Anyone who has turned 14 and 6 months old may sign up for class.
    • is not part of the school day or of school curriculum, but is considered a "part of school life."
    • is designed and dedicated to prepare our students for a lifetime skill that greatly enhances their quality of life

     Driver's Education Goals:

    The goal of Driver Education is to provide each student driver a start in psychomotor skills and mental attitudes that are essential to becoming the most competent, skillful, responsible driver possible. This serves as a base for parents to continue the instruction and supervision of their young driver in developing the necessary knowledge, skill, and attitude needed to become a safe driver. **Communication with parents/guardians is an important key in accomplishing this goal.

    Driving Schedules: 

    Students are not called by age but it will be considered in the process.

    Instructors will call parents individually to discuss the Behind the Wheel appointment options. Due to the very busy nature of summer, this process will continue into the first couple of months in the new school year (September through November). June is our busiest class room enrollment time followed by July. We are working aggressively to get summer classes completed for the Behind the Wheel portion of the program.

        Please be sure to review the no-show policy on the Information Form received at the parent meeting.
