As per New York State DTSE, the East Meadow School District has received guidance regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for our Spring 2020 Driver’s Education students.
The guidelines provided by NYSDTSE allow school districts flexibility to allow students to finish their programs. Some additional options may include:
Possible use of online instruction (via district vendor) to assist students in meeting the 24-hour requirements for classroom instruction. This option will only be available to students who have completed 18 hours or more of classroom instruction.
Students may complete their Spring 2020 laboratory instruction during the summer 2020 session or the fall 2020 semester.
Additional information will be provided as soon as it become available. Until then, we appreciate your patience during this challenging time and hope that you and your families are safe.
