Wakonda drivers' education begins soon by Nicole Mosberger Spring has sprung in Wakonda and it is going to be time to be getting your children into drivers' education. Your child must be 14 years old by Dec. 31, 2004, in order to participate in drivers' education.
The cost of drivers' education is $175. You may send your check to the Wakonda School business office any time earlier than May 21.
Sending this money by May 21 allows instructor Mark Weier to prepare ahead to know the number of students that will be attending the class.
The students are required to be at class every day. Drivers' education classes will begin on June 1. The classes are scheduled for June 1-4, and June 14-17. The classes will begin at 8 a.m. and go to noon.
The student must also score an 80 percent or above on the written test, or he/she can't participate in the driving lessons. Depending on how many students attend the class, driving lessons should begin on July 1.
If you have any questions about drivers' education or want to register your child, you may call the school office at 267-2644 by May 21.
