Registration Nears for Spring Driver Education Program
The Huntington School District's spring driver education program will hold registration for Huntington High School seniors on Tuesday, January 17 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
Registration will be held for other students on Wednesday, January 18 between 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Juniors (Class of 2013) will register first and then sophomores (Class of 2014) and then any other students.
All of the registration sessions will be held in room 122 – the office of the director of physical education and athletics. Students must register themselves and are not permitted to leave their last class early to line-up in the hallway. The program is open to any student who will be at least 16 years old by February 1 and who holds a valid learner's permit, which must be presented the first day of class.
There are 54 openings, which will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration fee is $500 for residents ($525 for non-residents). Checks should be made payable to: Huntington High School Driver Education Program.
An application for the program can be downloaded by logging onto the Huntington School District's website at www.hufsd.edu and clicking on the Resources link, then on Driver Education and then on Forms & Files.
The course will run from January 30 through May 11. Lecture classes will be conducted on Mondays and Tuesdays. Students must attend both days. Road classes will be conducted Mondays through Thursdays and on Saturdays. Class time will depend on each student's schedule. Individual schedules will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis on the day of registration.
Students are allowed to miss a maximum of three classes. However, these classes must be made up immediately. Once a student misses a fourth class, they will be dropped from the program and will be ineligible for a "blue card" (MV-285). Classes cannot be made up once a new semester has started.
Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the program each day. No refunds will be provided once classes have begun.
To be eligible for a "blue card" a student must satisfactorily complete 24 hours of lecture and 24 hours in the car during the summer program.
