Prerequisite: None. One factor in scheduling students will be their birth date.
    Description: Students in Grade 9 are placed in a driver’s education course dependent upon their birthdates. Students with the earliest birth dates will receive the classroom driver’s education first. This course is intended to prepare students for taking the permit test and to meet requirements for taking behind-the-wheel instruction and the subsequent drivers test. Thirty hours are required by state law. Attendance is mandatory. Parents and students will attend a required two-hour evening safety session which will qualify students to receive their blue card to take their permit and and sign-up for behind-the-wheel instruction at Annandale High School.
