1st, 2nd, and 3rd Period Driver's Education
4th Period Planning.
Fall Semester, 2013
I have the pleasure of teaching your child this semester in what I consider to be the most important class they can take in high school—Driver’s Education. I am also an English teacher, and although I think English is very important, I’ve never had a student injured or killed because they didn’t know enough Shakespeare! We will take this course seriously and I will be strict with my requirements concerning the students’ performance in class and on the road.
Fee: $35.00, If the fee is not paid, the student will not drive.
22 Classroom Days: This is State Law. If your child is absent, he or she will be required to make up any work missed. If the work is not made up, the student will not drive.
Passing the classroom section: State Law requires that each child will have 22 days of classroom instruction and that they pass this phase of the class. If the student does not pass they will not drive.
Permit: All students will be required to have a valid permit before they are allowed to drive.
Driving: There will be four types of drives. 1.) Rural 2.) City 3.) Interstate 4.) DMV Test
During the classroom portion of the class and in between drives with me, the student should be practicing with you. This is imperative. Becoming a good driver takes PRACTICE and lots of it. Four drives with me will not be enough to train your child completely. Please give them the opportunity to practice with you as well.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about the class or about your child’s progress in the class.
