Driver's Education is a course designed to prepare the student to operate their vehicle in a safe manner and to learn the proper and needed ways to maintain their vehicle.


The grade will be determined by work in two areas:

  • Test scores

  • Driving performance. ( 60% for test scores and 40% or driving performance.) There will be 3 tests given, including a final exam at the duration of the class.


It is State Law, that you attend 30 hours of classroom and 6 hours of driving. If you do not meet these requirements then you will receive an "I" for incomplete. In the event of an absence, if it is excused, you will be required to makeup the period of time that was missed. Excused absences will be determined by school policy. Tardiness will be handled according to school policy
