As posted on the CAPE website:
TEEN DRIVING: A FAMILY AFFAIR
A locally developed program that brings the Victim Impact Panel model into local high schools as part of the student’s application for their parking permit, which allows them to drive to school. The program mandates that both the student and a parent attend this modified VIP, which includes victims of substance related crashes as well as representatives from the District Attorney’s Office, the insurance industry and the medical community. Parents and students gain an understanding of the serious legal, medical, insurance, and emotional costs of driving distracted and of driving under the influence.
Students are welcome to attend the program at ANY High School. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. (6:15 p.m. at Arlington, John Jay and Roy C. Kethcam). The program is 1 hour (7pm-8pm). Student must be accompanied by at least one parent or guardian. Admittance after 7pm will not be allowed - No exceptions!
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
