Driver Education Update 6-2-2020
Riverside Community School District
Driver Education Guidelines for COVID-19 Prevention
The current public health crisis is having an impact on teen driver’s education across the state. To help driver’s education programs continue to provide education during this time, we are allowing virtual classroom instruction for driver's education. In addition, certain requirements in administrative rule 761-634.4 have been temporarily waived to provide flexibility for driver education providers seeking to continue providing the classroom instruction virtually during this time. The waiver also allows a student to begin the classroom portion of a course after they pass the instruction permit knowledge test, but before they have obtained their instruction permit.
Riverside has contracted with Dave Kuhl from Missouri Valley. He has sent information to the students who have registered and will be holding a Parent Meeting on Tuesday June 2, 2020. The Zoom link has been sent to the students at their school email address. If you as a parent need the link your student should have the information.
Driving will be scheduled by Dave Kuhl and his staff under the following guidance:
- Riverside Transportation Department will supply the vehicles
- Students must check their temperature at home prior any driving session, and stay home if it is 100.4 or above
- Students will socially distance as much as possible in the vehicle
- Students are encouraged to bring hand sanitizer and disinfect hands on a regular basis
- The vehicle touch points will be wiped down as students change to driver position
- They are not required to wear a mask/face covering during the driving time. Students can choose to wear a mask/face covering that they already own
- The vehicle will be disinfected before and after each driving session.
- Parents can request individual driving by contacting the instructor
