    WCPSS High School Parking Regulations

    1. All students must clear 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.
    2. The parking fee established by the Wake County Board of Education starting with the 2010-2011 school year is $170. Fees will be reduced by $15 per whole month not used. For example, a student purchases a decal December 1. The fee would be $110.00: $125.00 - $15.00 for each of the months of September, October, November and December.
    3. Parking permit applications will be available to students who have a valid North Carolina driver's license.
    4. 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.
    5. 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, drive-way, in 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 refund.
    6. Vehicles should be parked front-end first. Backing into spaces is not permitted.
    7. The safe operation of motor vehicles is required. Vehicles must not travel in excess of 10 miles per hour. Seat belts are required for driver and all passengers.
    8. 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.
    9. 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.
    10. Student vehicles are subject to search and seizure per Wake County School Board Policy 6600.
    11. Disabled vehicles may not be left on campus overnight. If necessary, towing should be arranged by the student.
    12. 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 originating school will make the refund.
    13. Refunds for parking fees will be made ONLY if the student moves away from the Wake County Public School System. Refunds will be prorated based on $10 per whole month not used. Parking fees will NOT be refunded for any other reason. This includes, but is not limited to the following:
      • voluntary withdrawal from school (dropping out)
      • long-term suspension from school
      • school-based disciplinary action related to loss of parking privilege
      • loss of driving privilege due to revocation of operator's license
        All other refund requests are at the discretion of the principal.
    14. 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.
    15. Inform the office immediately of any changes in vehicle or license plate.
    16. Lost parking tags will be replaced for a $10 fee. Report losses to the office.
    17. School Board Policy 6430 prohibits the possession and/or use of tobacco products on campus. Students may not possess tobacco products or smoke in cars at any time while on the school campus.
    18. Loitering in the parking lot is prohibited. Students should lock their cars and leave the parking lot immediately upon arriving at school. Students need written permission from an administrator, the SRO, or the parking lot attendant to be in student lots during school hours.
    19. Students who operate a motor vehicle on campus should fully understand their duties and responsibilities. Under School Board Policy 7170 students who violate parking regulations are subject to any or all of the following consequences:
      • Revocation of parking privilege
      • Ticketing
      • Towing and storage of the vehicle, at the owner's expense
      • Disciplinary action
      • Criminal charges as prescribed by law
    20. Handicapped parking is available as needed on an assigned basis only.
    21. Parking a vehicle on school property is a privilege, not a right. Please review all parking regulations with your parents and call the school for clarification of any matter about which there are questions.
