Driver's Education Application 2020-21
Dear Driver’s Ed. Parent & Student
Welcome to Drivers Education at Manhattan Christian School! This is an intense course. By completing the application, you agree to the following:
-- We will cover a lot of material in a short period of time. The In-Class sessions and driving hours are the state minimum, thus attendance is mandatory. I cannot stress enough that all students get out and practice a lot with their parent(s) once they pass their written test and obtain a Learner's License.
-- Each day students should bring to class a notebook for taking notes and a couple pencils/pens. Students should also have a separate notebook to use as a journal for written observation as others drive.
-- Students must attend all class times and behind-the-wheel driving times in order to pass this course.
-- Students must also obtain an 82% or better in both the class and the driving to pass.
--Students are allowed two tardies only of up to 15 minutes each. Rare attendance/tardy exceptions may be made for emergencies, but I must be contacted immediately.
-- A student's attitude and cooperation will be a part of their passing the course as well. Students with routine/severe discipline problems will not pass.
-- Any student found driving illegally during the sign-up period will not be admitted.
-- Any student found driving illegally during the course will not pass. This could include driving themselves to class without a parent, driving without a learner’s license, etc.
--No cell phones, food, music/electronic devices, or beverage (besides water) are allowed in the driver's education car or classroom.
--Only shoes firmly attached to your feet should be used for driving- no flip flops or loose sandals. Regular school dress codes and rules regarding behavior are enforced.
-- Students must get plenty of rest the night before driving. Sleeping in class or in the Drivers’ Ed. Vehicle is not acceptable or safe.
--Students may be reached through my cell phone number or the school number for emergencies- leave a message.
-- As our schedule is tight, all driving times are mandatory in order to pass. Drive times will be scheduled once the class has started. If time allows I may consider one make-up drive per student (students will need to be flexible, as our schedule allows) in order to pass.
