All first semester driver edducation students are to meet in room 15 during their scheduled driver education class room period beginning on on Monday, August 26!
How Eligibility works:
If, after these students register, there is space available in the class, we move down the list of birth dates for expanded eligibility. Students will be emailed at their school email account, allowing the opportunity to register for the earlier semester.
Summer Driver Education is a highly condensed program. This course demands daily driving practice outside of class. If you are unable to meet this requirement, please reconsider your enrollment. Students must be age 15 on or before June 11, 2012 and must have accumulated 4 credits in the prior 2 semesters. Permit applications will not be issued until 2 weeks before the start of class. Classroom will meet 4 days per week Monday—Thursday) for 1 1/4 hours per day and Behind the Wheel (BTW) will meet every 3rd day for 1 1/2 hours. Any student who misses more than three classroom sessions or more than one BTW session will be withdrawn as State of Illinois requirements will not be met. Please be advised that according to a recently amended Illinois state law (HB0418) students are not eligible unless they have “received a passing grade in at least 8 courses during the previous 2 semesters.”
