All students enrolled in classroom driver education must attend a 90-minute parent-teen traffic safety presentation. The 90-minute presentation is connected to classroom instruction and must be completed in addition to successful completion of classroom instruction in order for a student to receive a DEC-District 8 card. This requirement does not apply to students who successfully completed classroom instruction prior to September 1, 2010 and received a DEC-District 8 card. Students who completed driver education classroom instruction prior to September 1, 2010 do not need to attend the 90-minute parent-teen traffic safety presentation. The 90-minute parent-teen traffic safety presentation will be offered multiple times throughout the school year at each high school. Students and their parent/guardian should plan to attend the presentation at their school during the quarter of driver education.
