We are currently working on a plan where all the students will attend Career Center based on their address. Ideally students will be picked up from a designated location that students can access, and they will dropped off at KACC according to their time slots. Career Center starts on August 22nd. This plan is contingent upon approval from the Business Office. Students who are enrolled in Career Center will be contacted with more information. Students will need to check their email regularly to obtain their bussing information and their time slot information.
They will be working off Rules of the Road through Google Classroom. Drivers Ed teachers will communicate the objectives students need to be completing through Google Classroom. The late start will not affect student driving.
