Bill 769 directed the State Board of Education to design guidelines tying
academic performance with a student's ability to retain his/her driver's permit
and/or license. A student must pass 3 out of 4 courses each semester in order
to be eligible to receive a Driving Eligibility Certificate. Students not
meeting these criteria will lose their permit/license for a semester. A student
who drops out of school will lose his/her driver's permit/license.
Questions regarding this legislation should be directed to Leandra Carpino in Student Services, and driver's education questions should be directed to Mr. Wooten at 881-5003.
Students who transport other students who lack an official lunch pass will receive disciplinary consequences. Students with or without lunch passes who fail to follow the established guidelines will receive disciplinary consequences and loss of lunch privileges during the current and/or subsequent years.
