If there is sufficient enrollment driver education classes are conducted once per semester at Reid Ross Classical High School.

Driver Education class is held once a year at Cross Creek Early College High School, Cumberland International Early College if there is sufficient enrollment.  This class is normally held during the Spring Semester.

Important:   When choosing a session consider all the activities (sports practice and games, band, ROTC, etc.) that you might be involved with.  Check the days, times and the dates that Driver Education will be offered at the school you attend.   Remember students are expected to attend all class sessions.  You are not allowed to come in late or leave early.  There are no excused or unexcused absences in Driver Education.  You must attend all 30 hours of the classroom phase, it is State Law.

Upon completion of the 30 hours classroom requirement, students will then be scheduled to complete their 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction on school day afternoons and/or on Saturday.   No absences are allowed for the behind-the-wheel phase.

Transportation for both phases must be provided by the parent.
