Reitz Memorial High School will be offering two classes of Driver Edication during the summer months.  The classes will be open to Memorial students.  Indiana students must be at leat 15 years of age by the first day of class.  Students residing in Kentucky must be 16 years of age to register.  The classes are open to students entering grade nine.  State law requires the student to complete 30 classroom hours and 6 behind-the-wheel driving hours.
Session I is scheduled for May 21 - June 6, Monday – Thursday with no class on Memorial Day.  Session II is scheduled for June 4 – June 19, Monday – Thursday.  Course requirements for both sessions will be completed by June 30.  The classroom phase for Session I is from 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.  The classroom phase for Session II is from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Driving requirements for both sessions will be scheduled by the driving instructor/s.
The course will carry ½ credit.  As with other summer programs, the course, grade and credit will be reflected on the student’s transcript but the grade will not be included when computing grade point average.  Attendance will be monitored to meet state requirements. 
The cost of the summer program will be $300, with a non-refundable deposit of $50 due upon registration.  Attached is a registration form that should be completed and returned to our office.  Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis; 15 students will be enrolled for each session.  The $250 balance is due no later than the first day of class.  If your son or daughter will be taking the course during the summer, he/she should not register for Driver Education for the next school year.  You also need to be aware that if you decide to withdraw from the summer program and request enrollment during the school year, your son or daughter will be placed in the course on a space available basis and semester placement cannot be guaranteed. 
Reitz Memorial High School has three instructors who are state-certified to teach Driver Education.  Reitz Memorial High School reserves the right to alter class dates/times due to situations beyond control of the Driver Education program. 
An informational meeting for all Summer Driver Education students will be at Memorial High School during the last week of school.  Students will be given information/forms to obtain their learner’s permit from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.  Learner permits must be obtained prior to the first day of class.
