Students will be able to complete coursework requirements on-line with the exception of the Final Exam, which must be taken with supervision.  Students selecting this option will be able to begin course work on April 8th.  The instructor will schedule tests as the modules are completed.  Students will need to report to EHS at the scheduled test time.  Virtual coursework must be completed by May 15th. 

Driving will be scheduled by the instructor from June 1st – June 25th in groups of three.

Students wishing to select this option must register on the District homepage, Parents tab and select Driver’s Education before March 24th. The class will be filled by age prioritization and receipt of fees.
