Enrollment for Fort Wayne Community Schools' summer sessions of driver education is underway. FWCS will offer the program Monday through Friday from June 14-July 1 and July 11-29 at Anthis Career Center, 1200 S. Barr St. Classes are offered multiple times a day. The courses are open to any student, whether they attend FWCS or not, who is at least 15½ years old before the session begins. The student also must be currently enrolled and in good standing with a high school. The State of Indiana requires perfect attendance to receive Driver Education Certification; therefore, students with conflicts during class hours, such as extracurricular activities, summer camps or jobs, should not enroll. There are no make-up classes. Students can enroll in classroom only instruction, which is $85, driving instruction and road test, which is $310, or both for $395. A deposit of $197.50 is required for registration with the other payment due before completion of program.
