Students enrolled in a year round school must register for Session 1 and for the high school in their home school district.

Students who register for Summer School are not eligible for this driver education course.

The classroom phase of the Driver Ed course will be conducted Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.   Assigning students for behind-the-wheel phase will begin by the end of  the first day of class.

When choosing a session consider all the summer activities (time frame of camps and vacations, when sports practice will start, etc.) that would conflict with taking Driver Education during the time requested.

Students are expected to attend all class meetings.  Any student that misses over one class session runs the risk of being dropped from the program.  Arriving late to class or leaving early will not be tolerated.  You must be in attendance for 30 hours of class and complete and pass all assigned course work in order to pass the classroom phase of the course and complete 6 hours of behind-the-wheel.  There are no excused or unexcused absences in Driver Education.

A fee of $65.00 or a reduced fee of $32.50 shall be collected from each student.  The fee must be in the form of a money order made payable to Cumberland County Schools (Personal checks will not be accepted).  Please No cash!

To qualify for the reduced fee you must be enrolled in the free-and-reduced meal program with the Cumberland County Schools Child Nutrition Department.  The student must bring a Letter of Approval from Child Nutrition along with the fee of $32.50.  The Letter of Approval MUST be requested prior to the last day of school.  The Letter of Approval CANNOT be printed after the last day of school.  Any student who does not have the Letter of Approval by start of class will be issued a “Student Eligibility” form which must be completed by a parent/guardian and returned to the Driver Education Instructor.

This fee will be collected by the driver education teacher on the first day of class.  There are no exceptions or refunds!  If the student does not bring the required fee on the first day of class, he/she will not be admitted to class.
