Dwight-Englewood School (D-E) is once again offering a Driver Education Theory Course. Driver’s Ed at D-E School is administered by the D-E 360° Virtual Summer Connections program through FNL Driving School, to high school students at least 15 1/2 years old who reside in New Jersey. This course is given by Mrs. Nancy Lustenberger, formerly of the D-E Physical Education Department. The course fulfills the requirement of the New Jersey State written exam.
* Note: Students must attend ALL classes; otherwise, they will not receive course certification. This is a State-mandated requirement.
The classes are scheduled generally between 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM Mon-Fri from July 20 – July 31 with appropriate breaks. The course is limited to 50 participants; Driver’s Education with FNL Driving School registrations are open to students who attend D-E as well as area public and private schools.
Our approach to distance learning begins with the premise that the classes teachers design when school is in session cannot simply be replicated online. In particular, teachers are expected to employ alternative methods for providing feedback to support student growth and learning. In addition, work is designed to provide students with autonomous and/or asynchronous learning as well as connected time online.
If both behind-the-wheel and classroom courses are taken, the student is eligible for a reduction in auto insurance until the age of 21. Students must complete six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, which must be arranged independently with Mrs. Lustenberger, in order to earn a learner’s permit by the age of 16. Students are required to have their driver’s permit for a minimum of six months and have turned the age of 17, before they can be eligible to get their license. Those who already have a permit, but did not complete a classroom course, can enroll to receive a certificate toward their automobile insurance reduction.
The cost for the class is $295
Registration can be made through CampBrain
