Parents for Safe Teen Driving (PSTD)
Attention 10th grade students and parents: The state of Virginia requires all 10th grade students and their parent/guardian to attend a 90-minute traffic safety program as part of the classroom driver education instruction. This requirement began in the 2010-2011 school year and must be met before a student will receive a Driver Education Certificate of Completion (DEC-1 card).
PSTD Dates for Hayfield 2017-2018
November 13, 2018 (Parents and students should arrive by 6:45 p.m.)
February 5, 2019 (Parents and students should arrive by 6:45 p.m.)
April 3, 2019 (Parents and students should arrive by 6:45 p.m.)
Note: this is a requirement for current FCPS 10th and 11th grade students. Most 11th grade students went to this last year and do not need to go again. 11th grade students that did not see it last year need to sign up in advance to attend. To register by phone, please call 703-658-1201. All programs will be starting at 7:00pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the doors will close promptly at 7:00 pm. Once the doors are shut, no one will be admitted. If you are unable to attend at this time, additional program dates and locations can be found on the Fairfax County Public Schools website. You are strongly encouraged to mark your calendar now and plan to attend. You may attend any session -- preferably before or during the quarter your child has their classroom driver education instruction. If you have any questions, please contact Hall Vought at 703-924-2168. Please be aware of the following procedures that have been established to fulfill the requirements of the new law: • Student must attend with their parent/guardian. • Parent/guardian is required to show valid driver’s license or state issued identification number. • Attendance for FULL 90 minutes is required. • Proper completion of the registration form required (received at the session). • Program must be completed during the year student is enrolled in Grade 10 HPE. • No fees are charged to FCPS students currently enrolled in Grade 10 HPE.
Replacement Charges for Reissued Drivers Education Green Cards
Effective December 7th, 2013 there will be a $10.00 replacement charge for all reissued drivers education green cards.
Each child receives a driver’s education green card at the completion of the classroom drivers education course with a passing grade and the PSTD 90 minute course. Students take the driver’s education classroom course through 10th grade Health and Physical Education Class and the Parent and Safe Teen Driver Course is offered at Hayfield throughout the year. Students will not be issued a driver’s education green card if both of these items are not completed and if the passing grade in the classroom portion is not achieved.
The $10.00 replacement fee can be paid to the high school finance office and the card will be available for pick up in the main office 48 hours from that date.
