Parking Pass

2023-24 WCPSS High School Parking

  • All students must pay all fees and fines prior to applying for a parking permit. Permits will not be issued to students with outstanding fines or fees to your assigned school or any other school. Students wishing to park on campus must register and obtain a parking permit. Before beginning the registration process, both the student and parents should review the parking regulations below. Parking spaces will be assigned in the order that payments are received.

    1. There will be a limited amount of 150 parking spaces available for the 2023-2024 school year. Spaces will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost for parking for the 2023-24 school year has been estimated to be that of the past years, which is $200. Parking must be paid online using the OSP (Online School Payment) portal which includes a nominal surcharge of approximately $7. Parking Permits will be available to students that have a valid driver's license. Permits will be available to be picked up in the main office after verification and purchase.

    2. Parking permit applications will be available to students who have a valid North Carolina driver's license.

    3. All students who park a motor vehicle on the school campus must display the current hanging-tag permit. The tag must be hung from the inside rear-view mirror, facing the front of the vehicle. Students who fail to properly display the tag will be ticketed or have their tags revoked.

    4. Vehicles must be parked in assigned spaces. The only places available for student parking are the student lots. Students may not park on the road, driveway, intersections, or in any other place, including other school campuses. Vehicles parked in the wrong space or in unauthorized areas will be towed at the owner's expense and the permit will be subject to revocation without a refund.

    5. Vehicles should be parked front-end first. Backing into spaces is not permitted.

    6. The safe operation of motor vehicles is required. Vehicles must not travel in excess of 10 miles per hour. Seat belts are required for drivers and all passengers.

    7. Speeding and reckless driving are prohibited. Exiting from student lots in the afternoon will be held until buses clear the area. Citations will be issued as necessary.

    8. Supervision is provided for parking lots; however, the school system is not responsible for damages to or theft from vehicles. Students are cautioned NOT to leave valuables in their vehicles. Parked vehicles should be left with windows closed and doors locked.

    9. Student vehicles are subject to search and seizure per Wake County School Board Policy 6600.

    10. Disabled vehicles may not be left on campus overnight. If necessary, towing should be arranged by the student.

    11. If a student holding an assigned parking space transfers within the WCPSS during the year, he or she will be assigned a space at the new school with no further payment of fees, assuming the original parking tag has been returned to the office of the previous school. If no space is available at the new school, the student will have to wait for an available space.

    12. Only one tag will be issued per student. Students may register up to two of their family vehicles. The tag may be moved from one registered family vehicle to another but may NOT be sold or loaned to another student for his or her use. The penalty for so doing is revocation of parking privileges. Spaces may NOT be shared by students.

    13. Inform the office immediately of any changes in the vehicle or license plate.

    14. Lost parking tags will be replaced for a $10 fee. Report losses to the office.
