    Drivers Education Moves to Summer

    At the February BOE meeting, the USD 286 Board of Education approved moving Drivers Education from the school year to the summer.  This schedule change will be effective this summer, 2016.  

    The top priority of USD 286 is the education provided to our students.  By offering drivers education during the school year, we are sacrificing a course offering.  Our large 8th grade class would have required the use of two class periods to continue teaching Drivers Ed. during the school year.  We feel that our students would benefit much more from additional course offerings and educational opportunities during the school year.

    The district has contracted with Mr. Farrice to teach Drivers Ed. in the summer, here at Sedan HS.  Mr. Farrice will be in contact with both students and parents and will provide all needed information: schedules, deadlines, fees, forms, etc.
