Mandatory Parent/Student Driving Meeting

During the School year in which the student participates in classroom instruction, the student and parent are required to attend a 90-minute presentation. State legislation requires full participation in a 90-minute program; therefore, no one will be admitted after the presentation has started and the doors will be closed promptly at 7 p.m.

Students may attend a parent meeting at any Prince William County school.

Only Prince William County parent meetings will be accepted.
