Driver's Education

DE
REGISTRATION & GENERAL COURSE INFORMATION:

Spring Hill High School offers driver’s education during June and July under the supervision of instructors who have been certified by the Kansas State Department of Education.

 

The classroom portion of the course is taught online through the online curriculum agency Virtual Greenbush. The driving portion is taught by SHHS staff over six consecutive days in the summer. 

 

Although the online coursework can be completed from any computer with internet access, please note that the initial pre-test and the final exam must be taken under the supervision of a Spring Hill drivers’ education instructor. Students will not be able to drive with the instructor or begin online coursework until he or she has passed the pre-test at the high school. Students may visit the high school during regularly scheduled computer lab times as indicated on the driving schedules to take the pre-test, complete coursework, and/or to take the final online exam.

 

Students enrolling in the SHHS driver’s education course must be 14 years old by April 1 and possess a valid instruction permit issued by the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Motor Vehicle Division. Students will not be allowed to enroll in the course without a valid permit.

 

The fee for enrollment in the SHHS driver’s ed program is $274 per in-district student or $404 per out-of-district student (includes state fee).

 

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.

BEHIND THE WHEEL:

It is absolutely essential for students to be on time for all scheduled driving sessions. Because drive times are shared, the instructor will not wait for late arrivals, and the student will need to contact the instructor to make up his or her driving session. A make-up fee may be assessed for missed sessions.

 

AFTER REGISTRATION:

1) After registration is complete, the student must enroll with Virtual Greenbush right away. Enrollment instructions and the link to Greenbush are provided below.
