Drivers Education

Developing Safe and Competent Drivers

The Driver Education Department is dedicated to helping students become safety conscious and competent drivers. This is accomplished by a blend of classroom and behind-the-wheel the wheel experiences. Each high school has an enclosed and DMV approved driving range to ensure students safety. In addition, beginning in the 2014-15 school year, we are introducing desk-top driving simulators as an additional tool for students to practice safe driving.
