    About the Class:Driver Ed
    The classroom portion of Drivers Education will take place ONLINE. The class will be synchronous (All Students will be online at the same time during class time).
    Students must be available for class on Mondays and Wednesdays between 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Attendance and participation are mandatory to complete the class.
     
    Driving will be scheduled at these Schools, Centennial, Eagle, Meridian, Mountain View, and Rocky Mountain High Schools. There will be no driving portion of the program available at Owyhee High School. Students may register for another site and would need to be able to meet at another high school location for the Driving part of the program.
     
    We are working on adding an onsite program to Owyhee High School in the future.
     
    The course is approximately 8 weeks and is typically held after school three days a week. (2 days of class and 1 day of driving). There will be no scheduled online classes over school breaks.
    However, students may be asked if they are available to drive during these breaks.

    The West Ada School District Driver Education program is taught by certified instructors, utilizes a state-approved curriculum, uses inspected and safety-equipped vehicles, and provides insurance coverage while students are in the program.
