    Behind The Wheel
     
    In order for the student to be enrolled in the Behind the Wheel class, the student must have completed the entire drivers' education program. At the beginning of the school year, we will select 11th and 12th graders first. Once 10th graders are finished with drivers' education, then they will be selected.
