Driver Education Information for next school year 

HPE II curriculum includes the 36-hour classroom driver education course which is required for licensure.  During a typical school year, we instruct driver education in the health portion of HPE II between the start of school and Christmas break.  It typically takes about 10 weeks (we alternate with physical education every 3 weeks) Students are required to participate in all assignments and pass the assessments (11 learning modules).  The modules and assessments are created by Virginia Department of Education and may also include projects.  Our district also requires mandatory attendance of a 90 minute parent/teen safe driving presentation during the school year when the course is taken.  A county-wide schedule of presentation dates and times will be available in August. A permit is not required for this course, but the course may help students prepare for the DMV permit test.  Frequent absences and failure of assessments could result in failure of the classroom driver education course.   More information will be available to start the new school year!


Important info: 

Permit: at 15 and 6 months, students obtain permit at the DMV.  For appointments, general information, and the mandatory identifications please double check the https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/  website.  Typically, birth certificate, social security card, proof of residence, are the minimum requirements.     https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/drivers/#applying_learners.asp  

Study for the permit tests!  Many students fail due to lack of preparation.  We highly recommend students study from the interactive study guide provided by the DMV.   https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/dmv-manuals/#/ 

45 hours of guided practice:  If your student earns their permit, you must provide at least 45 hours of guided practice.  The log is a requirement to complete the behind the wheel portion and gets turned into the behind the wheel instructor.  PWCS does not require the log to be complete to take the behind the wheel course.  It must, however, be complete to earn the temporary driver license.   http://www.doe.virginia.gov/instruction/driver_education/parent_teen_driving_guide.pdf 

*The application “road ready” is also very helpful in tracking driving hours and mileage.   

Behind the wheel: A student under the age of 18 obtaining their license must take a 7 day (14 hour) behind the wheel course which includes a road test.  We have a website dedicated to the behind the wheel program at Brentsville.  We typically teach the course to eligible students (permit and enrolled/passed the 36-hour classroom completion course) after-school (2pm-4pm) driving and summer school sessions.  We have no direction on the future of behind the wheel this summer or fall.  We will let you know!  https://brentsvillehs.pwcs.edu/class_pages/teacher_pages/driver_education   

Current licensure requirements for students under 18: 

9 months holding a permit (earliest would be 16 and 3 months); classroom driver education completion; behind the wheel program including road test; 45-hour log turned into behind the wheel instructor.

SPORTS MEDICINE STUDENTS

I hope all of you are doing well and staying safe.
The initial portion of this message is directed to Sports Medicine students.  The second phase is directed to Health and Physical Education students.
  
Fortunately, our Sports Medicine class was able to complete the Brachial Plexus and most of the Lumbrosacral Plexus, with the exception of the lower leg, foot, and ankle.

As you probably know, teachers are only permitted to review previous content.  We are not allowed to assign and grade new information.

We, as a class, have accomplished a great deal this year.  In general, the vast majority of you have demonstrated an impressive comprehension of sophisticated (college level) material.

I am pleased with how well you have performed and the knowledge and skills you have developed. 

My goal was to complete both the BP and LSP by the end of the school year.  We were certainly on track to accomplish this goal with ample time left over.  This, as we have discussed, would have permitted us to gain a head start on next years content, Emergency Care and Treatment and Rehabilitation of Injuries.

I realize that many of you are Seniors and Sports Medicine II students.  While I am pleased with your accomplishments and confident that you are prepared for any medical arena that you pursue, I would feel remiss if we were unable to complete the foot, ankle, and lower leg.  Therefore, I am going to provide you the power point.  I will follow this up with questions to aid in stimulating your understanding and any other creative means of delivering the final leg (yes, that's a pun) on the LSP.  You will not be graded on this information.  The intent is to complete the final cog in the wheel and provide you the opportunity to develop a sound understanding of the final unit. 

HEALTH, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, and ADVANCED PE STUDENTS

We hope that this message finds you well!  We have missed seeing you at school, in the gym, on the sports fields, and in the weight room.  So, what's your plan?  Do you have any goals that you now have more time for?  When this is over, is there anything that you hope to be able to accomplish?   You have learned games, workouts, fitness activities, how to assess your fitness, create fitness/wellness goals, covered many health topics, and it's time to put these things to the test!  What are you doing for YOURSELF when you aren't being held accountable?  No one is watching.  It doesn't matter..... BUT.... it does matter, doesn't it.  You are/will be finding that you are in control of your own health and wellness.  Physical fitness and mental wellness is necessary for LIFE.  
A few hours of learning and a few hours of doing should be our goal each day.  Learning includes school work, learning something new, researching a new topic, making goals, reading (to learn or for fun), etc.  Doing includes manual home tasks (walking the dog/gardening/cleaning), fitness activities, recreation games, etc.   Challenging your mind and body is a human requirement.  It fends of boredom, give you a sense of purpose, and it leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment when you are finished!  
 
For Brentsville Physical Education, we are asking that our students enter our activities into a digital log.  Its easy.  The instructions are attached.  Goal is 5 hours a week, but don't stress about that, there in no minimum or maximum. 
FAQs 
Directions: Complete optional activity log a week for the duration of school hiatus.  This can be completed on a desktop computer or a mobile device.  Each log begins on a Monday and ends on a Sunday.  The log closes for entry on the following Monday
