The Driver Education curriculum may be offered in three phases:

All students must meet the state attendance requirements of 30 classroom hours and 6 hours behind the wheel. Prerequisites for the regular school year classroom enrollment are:

  4. A student must have a cumulative grade point average of 1.60 or greater prior to enrolling in Driver Education.
