Driver's Ed Update

Driver's Education Update
Posted on 05/28/2020

The State Board of Education has given permission for the required 30 hours of book work for  driver's education to be taught online. The driver's education instructors have been working diligently to get the curriculum ready to be taught online. 


High school students who need to complete driver's education will be contacted first. The class will be taught totally online with an instructor leading the class. Google Classroom will be the platform used for the class.

 

Students must attend every session in order to complete the 30 hours that are required.

Several classes will be offered at various times throughout the summer.

 

The first sessions will begin on Monday, June 1 and the students in those classes have already been contacted. After the current high school students have completed the class, then incoming 9th grade students who need to take driver's education over the summer (because of extracurricular activities that prevent them from taking the course during the school year) will be contacted.  

     

The State Board Policy states that students must be 14.5 years old in order to take driver's education. Therefore, students must be at least 15 years old by Jan. 1, 2021, in order to qualify to take the course during the summer.

     

The State Board has not given permission to complete any driving at this time. We continue to monitor the Governor’s announcements regarding COVID-19 re-entry phases and will keep you posted as information becomes available.
