Rules of the Road

All School Rules & Regulations are in effect with the addition of the following;

Electronic devices or cell phones – As per school regulations, these devices will be returned when your parents
           come to school to pick them up. If you have them, turn them off at the start of both the lecture class and the car classes.
Immature behavior- Is dangerous and will not be tolerated. It will result in a failing grade and removal
           from the program.
           Drivers Education classes are college formatted, requiring you to be young mature adults. Enrollment in this class
           is a privilege and does not guarantee or entitle you to a passing grade.
No food allowed in class- Drinks and gum included.
You are allowed only two absences- It is your responsibility to make up any missed classwork or car classes.
           There are no "excused"  absences. Absences due to bereavement, sports, SATs, ACTs (and other exams), are still considered absences.
Don’t be late- If you are late to class three times, it will equal one absence. If you arrive to class late more
           than 15 minutes, this will be considered an absence. Lateness to car classes may result in an absence as well.
