Plaistow looks at driver education options
Earlier this month, Superintendent Earl Metzler and the school board agreed to look at options for the program, which has been losing a significant amount of money each year.
Approximately 200 students per year enroll in the program. There are 10, seven-week sessions offered per year and the program employs three part-time instructors, according to Metzler.
Instructor Cheryl Roy said there are some financial issues with the program, but the program has provided quality driver education for the high school's students for a number of years.
“The problem is that some of the private schools are just meeting the minimum state requirements, and our standards are high,” said Roy.
“Right now, we are trying to find the best way to provide that service, and it is an agenda item for May 8,” said Metzler. “We are looking at all the options and trying to make the numbers work. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of strangers coming to our school and taking (students) out and driving them around.”
