Driver's Ed - Spring Program

Below are guidelines John Jay is following per New York State Education Department and the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles regarding the spring 2020 Drivers Education:

Under normal circumstances, all classroom and laboratory instruction must be provided concurrently.   However, in response to school and district closures as a result of COVID-19, school districts may allow currently enrolled students to complete their lecture and classes during the summer 2020 or fall 2020 semester. Our goal is to be able to continue the Drivers Education Program when schools re-open so that each student completes the program and receives their MV-285 (certificate of completion).   All students registered for the Spring program should have received information from PAS.  PAS will offer remote (on-line) lecture classes – Please note:  

  • In order to take a road test, students will have to complete the required 50 hours behind the wheel with parents/guardian.  Parents must certify that the student has completed 50 hours of supervised driving.  The driving hours completed with PAS Auto can be combined with parent-supervised hours to reach the required 50 hours.  
  • Students will receive the five-hour course completion certificate (MV-278) after they have completed the required hours. Arrangements will be made to distribute certificates to students.  
  • Students will not qualify for their senior license at age 17
  • Parents may request to transfer their child’s Spring registration to the Fall 2020 program.  
  • NEW:  If schools are allowed to open during summer months with approved social distancing rules in effect by NY State Ed and Governor Cuomo, we will offer the driving portion at John Jay.  More information to follow.

If you would like to withdraw from the program, please contact Debbie Fried (dfried@klschools.org).  The refund will be 50% of the registration fee.  If you choose to withdraw from the program, you will not receive a course completion certificate (MV-285).

Advanced Placement Process - 8th Graders

Due to the current situation with school closures due to COVID-19, information on the Advance Placement Process (APP) for Fall 2020 8th Graders will not be posted until July/August.

Scholar Athlete Team Award

 At the end of each sports season, NYSPHSAA honors teams (and individuals) that excel in the classroom.  These student-athletes and teams work very hard and deserve to be recognized.  Varsity teams qualify by 75% of the team having a composite GPA of 90% or better.   This season, we had six teams which qualified for this award.   Congratulations to our winter teams and Individual Scholar Athletes.
