Drivers Ed registration is tomorrow

Demopolis High School will begin enrolling students into its summer drivers education program Wednesday.

The summer school course is scheduled for July 2 through Aug. 1 and comes as a supplement to DHS curriculum, which lost its drivers education program due to budget proration last spring.

The course will be instructed by James Moody and will include six days of classroom work and five days of hands-on driving instruction.

“The main thing is just trying to bring back drivers education opportunities for students,” Demopolis High School principal Leon Clark said.

The program will have two sessions, the first running from July 2 through July 18 and the the latter taking place from July 18 through Aug. 1.

Each session has a limit of 17 students and is available for a fee of $125 per student.

“The fees will take care of the pay of the instructor and the cost of the actual program itself,” Clark said.

Sessions will last from noon to 5 p.m. each day and participating students will be eligible for elective credit.
