Drivers Education 2018
Classroom Driver’s Education 2018
We are excited to offer Driver’s Education at the Ripon High School during Summer School 2018. We will be providing students with the tools and information necessary to pass the written portion of the Driver Licensing Test, and help them to become safe and responsible drivers.
There will be up to three sections offered daily and one specialized section in July. The classroom portion will fulfill the Department of Motor Vehicle’s requirement of 30 hours of classroom instruction for students to obtain a driver’s license. The remaining portion, Behind-the-Wheel, may be done through an area private driving school, as the high school does not offer a behind- the-wheel program.
In keeping with state requirements, and in fairness to all students and staff, the following guidelines will be enforced:
- Cost for classroom Driver Education in the summer is $15. This should be paid to the high school office when you sign up for the course. Until payment is received your registration is not complete.
- Students must attend the class session and time they are signed up for.
- Students will be allowed to miss only one class session throughout the duration of the 15-day course. If more than one day is missed, the student may be dropped from the class and will have to take the classroom portion of driver’s education at another time.
- If a class is missed, the student must make up the work and time missed. The student is responsible for asking the instructor for this work and completing it by the end of the class day. If the work is not made up, the student may be dropped from the course.
- Driver Education classes at Ripon High School will run from June 11 - July 27, 2018.
- Each class session will be 2 hours long with a 10 minute break. This will satisfy the total of 30 hours of classroom instruction required by state law. Up to three sessions will be offered as follows: 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., 9:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m., 12:00 – 2:00 p.m., and 1:00-3:00 (Priority for this session will be given to students that attended the Costa Rica trip in June).
- Students must pass the course with a minimum average of 60%. If this is not reached, students have “failed” the course and will have to retake the class at a later date.
- Class lists will be posted outside the office. Announcements will be made to alert students when the class lists become available. Students are asked to check the schedule for their class time.
- Students are expected to follow all the same RHS rules and procedures as are in place for the regular school year. If rules are not followed, a student will be asked to leave class for the day and be required to make up the work and time. Other disciplinary action may follow. The student will be allowed to return to class the next day, however, if the student acts in such a manner on more than one occasion, he/she may be dropped from the class.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I can be reached via e-mail at [email protected] Be sure to talk with the instructor on the first day of class if you have any issues with attending all fifteen sessions of the class. Thank you.
