Drivers Education

Drivers Education:

  • is a state supported program for all students enrolled in school whether public, private, charter, or licensed home school.
  • 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, however; 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 Education Goals

The goal of Driver Education is to provide each student driver the 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.
