End of road for Timberlane’s driver's education program
The School Board recently voted to do away with the program effective July 1, citing the financial and administrative burden it has placed on the district over the past several years.
As that state help has disappeared in the past several years,the program has been losing up to $50,000 per year. About 200 students took driver education through the high school last year.
“We feel that it would simply be best to remove ourselves from the business of driver education,” said Strainge.
“We’re the last of the Mohicans,” he said.
Several board members said they don’t want to see the district losing money on the program, but said it is a convenience for parents and students.
Board member Kelly Ward noted the district also provides some financial aid and scholarship opportunities for students in need and said he would hate to see families lose that.
