Driver Education

 

Program Ending in 2019

Thank you for your continued partnership in championing the success of our students. A core of St. Vrain Valley Schools’ mission is to advance learning opportunities throughout our schools to ensure that our students reach their highest potential. We regularly evaluate programs alongside district strategic priorities so that we focus our resources on programs that are in full alignment to our mission.
 
The growth of local businesses in providing driver’s education training, alongside decreasing enrollment, means that we will be closing the Driver’s Education program at the end of the summer term. For the remainder of this school year, we will be accepting additional enrollment for summer classes until courses are full. If your student is already registered for the summer term, there will be no disruption to their course enrollment.
