Driver’s Education

Overview

The goal of Lenoir County Public Schools (LCPS) and its driver education contractor, JDS Carolinas, Inc., is to provide quality driver’s education to all students in a safe and timely manner.  The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires that students receive at least 30 hours of classroom instruction and six hours of behind-the wheel training to receive a driver’s education certificate.  There are no academic requirements in order to take drivers education classes.  However, there are academic requirements to apply for a permit or licenses after finishing the driver education class.

Driver’s education is available to Lenoir County Public School students who are between the ages of 14 ½ years to 18 years old at no cost.  Students who attend Arendell Parrott Academy, Kinston Charter Academy, and a licensed home school (must live in Lenoir County) are also eligible for driver’s education classes through Lenoir County Public Schools.   Students who are dismissed from driver education classes due to behavior or attendance problems will not be allowed to take driver education classes a second time through Lenoir County Public Schools.

Drivers education classes will be offered several times during the school year including the summer and holidays.  A schedule of class offerings is available on the JDS Carolinas, Inc. website.

Registration

Students may register for a driver education class by completing a registration form and sending the registration form to JDS Carolinas, Inc.  Registration forms are available at each middle or high school, on our LCPS website, and/or the JDS Carolinas, Inc. website.

Drivers Eligibility

As of August 1, 1998, any person less than 18 years old who is applying for a permit or license must have a driver’s eligibility certificate.  This certificate states that the student is working toward obtaining a high school diploma meaning that the student must be passing at least 3 out of 4 classes per semester, the student is currently enrolled full-time in school, and not be subject to the Lose Control; Lose License law (GS 20 – 11).

The certificate is valid for 30 days after the date it was originally issued.  Students may obtain a drivers eligibility certificate from the school they currently attend.

2010-2011 Testing Results for Lenoir County Public Schools

ABCs of Public Education

In order to meet the requirements of the ABCs testing program in North Carolina, schools are held accountable for the percentage of students performing at or above grade level (Achievement Level III) and for the individual growth that students achieve during a school year.

According to the testing results, 10 of 17 schools in Lenoir County met at least Expected Growth during the 2010-2011 school year. High Growth was achieved by 4 of those schools. Additionally, 8 schools showed positive gains on their Performance Composite.

Highlights include:

  • As a district, Lenoir County met Expected Growth on End of Grade Assessments
  • As a district, Lenoir County met Expected Growth when End of Grade
  • Assessments and End of Course Assessments were combined
  • Overall school growth – 10 of 17 schools met Expected Growth with 4 schools meeting High Growth
  • Reading Growth – 10 of 12 schools met Expected Growth with 2 schools making High Growth
  • Math Growth – 8 of 12 schools met Expected Growth with 6 schools making High Growth
  • Composite scores – Composite scores increased in 8 of 17 schools
  • Cohort graduation rate increased in all high schools with the overall district rate showing an increase of 2.7%

Adequate Yearly Progress

AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) is a measure required under the federal No Child Left Behind law. To make AYP, a school must meet 100% of the performance targets for each subgroup in the school. If just one target is not met, the school does not make AYP for that year. New AYP proficiency targets for meeting annual measurable objectives were implemented in 2010-2011 for grades 3-8 reading (71.6%), grades 3-8 mathematics (88.6%), grade 10 reading/language arts (69.3%), and grade 10 mathematics (84.2%). These increases in proficiency targets dramatically impacted our schools’ ability to meet AYP.

In order to qualify as a subgroup, there must be at least 40 students identified in a specific category. There are 10 possible subgroups which include: All students, White, Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Two or More Races, Limited English Proficiency, Economically Disadvantaged, and Students with Disabilities. Schools must also test at least 95% of the students in each subgroup in order to make AYP.

The 2010-2011 AYP results in Lenoir County show that three schools made AYP by meeting 100% of their target goals.
