Driver Education

February 01, 2017

 

SHHS will once again offer drivers’ education this summer.  The classroom portion of the class will be taught online.  The driving portion will continue to be taught by SHHS staff over six consecutive days in the summer.  

Registration for driving times will be Sat., April 1 from 8-11 a.m. in the high school commons. Students must be present at registration to complete and sign the enrollment form for the State of Kansas.

Students enrolling in the course must be 14 years old by April 1 and have a valid learning permit.  Students will earn .5 credit for the course which will be pass/fail.  

Please bring the following items to registration:

  • Student’s valid instruction permit
  • Enrollment fee (cash, check or money order) of $274 per in-district student or $404 per out-of-district student (includes state fee) payable to USD 230.
  • Family calendar to select driving times.  
Access to the online portion of the class will begin after registration.  The coursework can be done on any computer with internet access and/or at Spring Hill High School during scheduled times over the summer.  Only the final exam must be taken under the supervision of a Spring Hill drivers’ education instructor.

Online courses require about the same amount of work as regular high school classes.  However, you will notice that online learning requires more student responsibility when completing assignments and activities.  Active support from parents can play a key role in assisting the student to complete coursework as well as developing the work ethic needed to be successful in this learning environment.

Upon enrolling in Drivers’ Education, students will receive an introductory email from Virtual Greenbush, the agency coordinating the online curriculum.  The email will contain the student’s password, course information, and teacher expectations. If there are any questions about the course please contact Dean Pope.
