Driver's Education Sign-up

Summer 2022 Driver's Education Class: Letters were sent home to eligible students the week of April 6th. Below is the letter that was sent home. If your child is eligible and you did not receive a letter, please talk to Trish a 319-478-2265 ext 173.

Driver’s Education Information Summer 2022

Your child is eligible to take Driver’s Education at North Tama during the summer of 2022.  We have room to accommodate 40 students and 50 students are eligible. We will prioritize those enrolled by the following order:

1.  Those who will be 16 or older.

2.  Those who need a school permit. 

3.  Those who are 14 or older and have their learner’s permit by the deadline will be on a first come first served basis.

4.  SIGN UP DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2022, if there are still spots open in the class. Additions after that date will only be made if room is available in the schedule.

The cost is $350.00. Students must sign up and the fee for class must be paid (or payment arrangements made with Trish or Cindy) by Friday, May 6, so driving groups and the driving schedule can be ready for the parent/student meeting on Sunday, May 22, from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. in the gym.  This is a mandatory meeting to receive one makeup class credit and sign up for driving groups.

If you are planning (or have already made plans for) a vacation, camp, or other reason to miss Driver’s Education in June, you may still be able to meet your other commitment and take driver’s education, as we have two built-in make-up days and students can pay to make up additional classes or drive times. With two built-in make-up classes, students can miss up to two classes at no extra charge. Additional make-up classes or driving times are $25 each. All missed classes or driving times must be scheduled, paid for, and made up before the last official day of Driver’s Education; failure to do so will result in failing the class.

 There will be an important student/parent meeting on Sunday, May 22, from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. in the gym. These two hours will be considered class time. We will set up driving groups and times that afternoon and students who are not at the meeting will be assigned a group and driving time. Driver’s Education packets will be available for pickup in the Main Office starting May 1.

Driver’s Education first class will be on Friday, May 27, right after school from 1:15-3:15 in the MPR (if there aren’t any more snow days). The tentative schedule for Driver’s Education will be in the packets available in the Main Office on May 1st.  This is a tentative schedule and will probably change due to students adding or dropping Driver’s Education. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility with the schedule changing.

All students must have their permits on or before Friday, May 27.

Please return the enclosed form or call us at 319-478-2265 (x 173). Forms may be taken to the Main Office and turned into Trish or Cindy. You can also sign up by emailing Trish Kennedy (
