    Winter/Spring Driver Ed Program - please be aware that there are significant changes to the way the program is being run. We ask that you read through all program information before registering your child.
    Some highlights of the changes:
    • The program is 16 weeks long.

    • Students will have to log into an online lecture, via Google Meet, once a week & do the required assignments prior to the next week's class. Students must use their WCSD email address to do this.

    • The behind-the-wheel portion will done by the parents and will not begin until mid-March. At that time, we will hold a mandatory orientation to go over the materials and specifics of this portion of the program.

    • The cost of the program is $125.
