NOTE TO PARENTS and STUDENTS:    Driving to school is a privilege for students who demonstrate responsibility.

All student vehicles parked on the school campus without a current parking permit, MAY BE TOWED WITHOUT WARNING*, at the owner’s expense.  Those students with valid parking permits will abide by the following:

Student drivers who have applied for and been approved special permission by the administrator in advance to drive to SGSTC will be issued a parking permit for a fee of $30 paid by cash or check payable to Susie G. Gibson Science and Technology Center.Students without optional BCPS transportation (adult LPN, TFT, etc.) will pay a fee of $5.Replacement permits will be issued at a cost of $5 if lost or stolen.Students who need a permit for work related reasons MUST provide a letter from their employer before a permit it issued.
  2. Students who wish to drive to SGSTC must register their vehicles online (a valid driver’s and driver contract signed by student and parent is required).If a student is 18 years old, they may sign their own contract, but must comply with the rules that apply to the contract.
  3. Students must park their vehicles in the student assigned parking area.Any vehicle blocking the access lanes or parked improperly may be towed away at the owner’s expense.

  7. If a student receives 6 unexcused tardies or 3 unexcused absences, parking privileges will be suspended for 1 week.All subsequent tardies/absences will extend the period of lost driving privileges-administration will determine the length of suspension for driving at that time.
  8. Student vehicles may be searched by school administration when circumstances warrant such action.Remember you are responsible for all items in your vehicle and that you are to ensure there are never items in your car which are in violation of the Code of Student Conduct or state law.
  9. Students must enter and exit the student parking lot from the rear entrance to avoid encounters with buses.

  • 3rd offence:driving privilege will be revoked

 

Students under 18 years of age, who have had their license for less than 1 year may not carry more than 1 passenger other than siblings in their vehicle.  After holding a valid license for 2 year, students under the age of 18 may not carry more than 3 passengers.  ALL students are expected to wear seatbelts.  Periodic safety checks will be performed at the discretion of the administration, under the supervision of the School Resource Officer.

I have read and understand the rules, procedures and expectations for student drivers at SGSTC.  I further understand that if all the above rules are not followed I will lose my parking permit and privilege to drive to, and park at school.
