DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM INFORMATION
DRIVER EDUCATION: Age 14 prior to June 1, 2012. Students learn the principles of safe driving.
DRIVER EDUCATION consists of classroom instruction and driving instruction. Students must
successfully complete both parts of the course.
Student Driving Schedules will be determined by the instructor. Students may be involved in the
driving phase throughout the listed driving schedule. Students must successfully complete both parts
of the course to earn a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION which can be used in moving towards
obtaining a Kansas restricted license. Parents and students should consult the Kansas Highway
Patrol website for complete requirements.
NOTE: The Louisburg Driver education curriculum is a competency based curriculum. It is important for
students to maintain regular attendance. All course work must be completed at either an 80% or 90%
level to show competency allowing students to continue to the next competency. Absences will only
jeopardize the completion of the course in the allotted time. Students not finished with tests by the
last day of instruction will re-enroll for the following summer and pay additional enrollment fees.
NOTE: When using the Dr. Ed Certificate of Completion to obtain a DMV Instruction permit, students
must present picture identification, birth certificate.
It is difficult for teachers to reschedule missed driving times so students must be available for all driving
times as scheduled by the teacher. If the student cannot attend a driving session because of illness or
family emergency, the student is responsible for notifying the teacher as soon as possible prior to the
scheduled driving time.

offered, the class would be from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eye examinations will be given at school after the

Students should bring their vacation schedules to the first class on June 4. The Driver Education
teacher will develop driving schedules that will work around a maximum of ONE week of vacation
during the driving phase. Regular attendance is essential during the instructional class time in June.
We cannot work around absences during the classroom phase.
Students who will also take summer school will need to make sure their classes do not
conflict. Those students should enroll in driver education in the afternoon.
