2019 Summer Drivers Ed Information

2019 SUMMER FACE TO FACE DRIVER EDUCATION

Mandatory Parent/Student Meetings and Enrollment Information

 

USD 266 Maize Schools will once again offer summer face to face driver education.  Any student who turns 14 on or before May 30st, 2019 and has or will graduate 8th grade by June 1st will be eligible to enroll in summer driver education. Students will attend two weeks of classes in the Maize South High School Auditorium starting Thursday, May 30, 2019 (note: there will be no classes on Friday, May 31st due to Kansas Special Olympics taking place on the Maize South Campus) and ending on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm each day. Students will also complete at least five, one hour driving sessions (schedule to be determined after class begins). We prefer that students get an instructional permit at the DMV in advance of the class and spend as much time as possible driving in safe locations with their parents. Practicing with parents before class starts is a plus considering that driver education is only five hours of driving.

Two mandatory enrollment meetings will be held in late April and early May. Parents and students must attend one of the two meetings. The first meeting will be on Monday, April 29th at 6:00 pm in the Maize South High School Commons Area. The second meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 1st at 6:00 pm in the Maize High School Commons Area. Eye tests will be given at both of these meetings. Enrollment forms will be emailed out to parents during the month of April. Students will need to bring any type of license or permit they might already have to the meeting.

 

The cost of summer driver education is $200 with payment due in full on the date of the meetings.  Students who qualify for free or reduced lunches may apply for waived fees during the enrollment process.  No registrations or late payments will be accepted after the last parent meeting on Wednesday, May 1st.
