Application will be available to print online on the William Floyd School District’s website (www.wfsd.k12.ny.us). Interested students who are at least 16 years of age and have a valid NYS learners permit may apply. Registration will be Wednesday, June 6th @ 4pm for Seniors and Thursday, June 7th @ 4pm for Juniors and Sophomores. Registration will be held in the south lobby outside the counseling center. Students must bring the completed application, NYS Learners permit and payment of $400.00 at the time of registration (cash, check or money order payable to Wm. Floyd UFSD). Please note: Students will be notified at the time of registration of their lecture and drive times. Once assigned to a day and time for class, it cannot be changed..
Procedures, Expectations and Attendance Requirements*
In order to be issued a New York MV-285 “Student Certificate of Completion” certificate, New York State law requires you to have 6 hours of actual driving, 18 hours of in-car observation and 24 hours of class lecture. Students are scheduled for exactly the number of hours required by NYS. Absences are only permissible when they involve extenuating circumstances, and those absences require documentation. These will be considered and/or approved on a case-by-case basis, and any absence that is authorized must be made up. Students and parents/guardians are advised that family vacations, jobs, or participation on a sports team are not considered to be justifiable reasons for absence, and students must arrange with the teacher to make up the missed class. In cases where a student misses an in-car session, it is the student’s responsibility to switch with another student if he/she cannot attend. If missing sessions are not made up, the MV-285 cannot be issued. Students enrolled in Driver Education are expected to be in good standing with respect to attendance and behavior for the duration of the course.
