• Career and Technical Education Endorsement

    The Business Department offers 3 Career and Technical Education Endorsements for students who complete a sequence of courses in our Business Department.  The Career and Technical Education endorsement is New York State recognition of successful completion of career-based courses.  Under the new “4+1” pathway assessment option, students must take and pass four required Regents Exams or Department-approved alternative assessments (one in each of the following subjects: English, math, science, and social studies) and a comparably rigorous assessment for the fifth required exam to graduate. The fifth assessment required for graduation may be an approved Career and Technical Education technical assessment.  Additionally the student’s diploma would contain a technical education endorsement indicating successful completion of a CTE approved program.

    DRIVER EDUCATION 

    1. ATTENDANCEEach student must complete 24 hours of lab time and 24 hours of classroom work (1/4 of the lab time must be actual behind the wheel driving experience). 
    1. AGEYou must be 16 years old on or prior to the 1st day of classes. 
    1. BEHAVIOR - The philosophy of the course is to provide an awareness of the need for safe habits and compliance with the law. If the instructor becomes aware of legal violations, recklessness or a dangerous attitude, the instructor has an obligation to deny you course credit and drop you from the course.  Never distract the driver while you are the passenger, and do not comment on any difficulties the driver is having that make him/her more unsettled.
    1. CREDIT – The course has two parts – a lab and a classroom. The DMV requires that a passing grade of a least 65 be achieved in each part.  No blue card can be issued without passing both. 
    1. THE BLUE CARD – Upon successfully completing the course work, you will be issued the blue card. This MV 285 card is to be kept in safekeeping.  When you are ready for your road test, present you permit and the card at the DMV office for a road test appointment.  If you are age 16 at that time you should save the card until you are 17.  If you are 17 when you take your test, or you turn 17 after passing the road test with the DMV, the blue card will give senior driving privileges instead of waiting until age 18.  DO NOT TAKE THE 5-HOUR COURSE - THE BLUE CARD IS USED INSTEAD.
    1. INSURANCE - At some time in the future, you will need proof of haven taken driver’s education in order to obtain an insurance discount. Take the insurance form you receive from driver’s education to your insurance carrier to get the discount.
    1. DRESS CODE – Do not wear clothing that is inappropriate for school wear. Do not wear sandals or footwear that might catch on pedals.  T-shirts and jewelry must follow the same guidelines that the principal sets for the classroom.
