Additional Course Offerings

Drivers Education

Half (1/2) year; Half (1/2) credit

Prerequisite: driver’s permit

It is our goal to offer Driver Education during the school day. There will be many factors that impact our ability to do this.

The course is broken down into two sections: the car groups and the classroom. In the classroom, the students will be required to gain the knowledge, general principles and procedures needed to become a defensive driver. During the in-car sessions, the student learns parking skills, three-point turns, left and right turns, winter driving, country driving, highway driving and driving within village, town and city limits. They also learn the rules of the road, NYS traffic laws and the mental make-up of good and bad risk drivers and disabilities.

Computer Science Internship Program

Students have the opportunity to design their own curriculum and final project with Mrs. Jones based on their needs and goals for technological exploration and experimentation. Students may replace any study hall with a scheduled CSI lab time and agree to attend all whole group meetings held during Block 10. It is also a great way to serve the school, their peers and their community either as a volunteer or as a credit-bearing independent study.
