Behind the Wheel began on Oct 5. Teachers are currently driving students from the March 2020 class, and students who were waiting from earlier classes. Teachers will be contacting students to schedule driving. There is nothing that you need to sign up for regarding BTW. The teachers have the names and will connect as they can schedule.
Students who need DRIVER ELIGIBILITY CERTIFICATES, please follow the updated instructions as we are changing slightly due to the increased numbers being requested:
1. Call the Front Desk and request a DEC
2. Give the Front Desk full student name
3. Schedule a pick up at the front of the school with Front Office personnel. Parents/Guardians must pick up DEC, and provide ID to personnel before certificate can be released. You may want to schedule your DMV visit prior to requesting a DEC, as they are only valid for 30 days.
Remember, you must be a registered High School Student to take this class at this time.
****Middle school students will be eligible to begin taking the summer sessions as they will then be registered for 9th grade classes in High School.
Note: The Registration Form is only activated when class is in open registration. The button disappears when the class is full.
*Please sign up using the Registration Form Link located on the left. A confirmation message will appear after you click the SUBMIT button. You will also receive a reminder the weekend before the class begins.
