2017 SUMMER DRIVER EDUCATION REGISTRATION
***MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2017***
FERGUS HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA
PARENT / STUDENT REGISTRATION
Students interested in enrolling in Driver Education for the June session, and a parent or legal guardian, are asked to attend registration on Monday, February 13th, from 5:45-6:15pm at the Fergus High School Cafeteria. There will be a short informational program followed by registration.
All area students who are fourteen and one-half years of age or older when the session begins, are eligible to enroll in Driver Education. Eligible students must have been born on or before December 1, 2002. The session is contingent upon adequate student enrollment.
The Driver Education course consists of 42 hours classroom time, 6 hours behind-the-wheel training, and 12 hours of observation of other students driving.
Students, along with their parents, need to consider all extra-curricular activities, family vacations, part-time jobs, and other time commitments when registering for Driver Education. Attendance is mandatory; a student may not have more than one absence or they will fail the course. Any coursework missed must be made up. If a student misses an assigned driving lesson, they will be billed $25 for the make-up session.
Cost of the course will be $280 per student. A letter will be sent to you after registration has been completed which will explain the payment procedures and options. Full payment will be due by Friday, April 28th for the June session. Time payment plans are available but must be paid in full prior to April 28th. Payment options for using a debit or credit card will also be available on the School District’s Parent Portal. There will be no refunds once the session begins.
A mandatory parent/student meeting will be held in May, prior to the session, to provide you with a schedule of classroom and behind-the-wheel driving times as well as more specific permit and program information.
