SJE Board Policy 2178 — Instruction

Traffic Safety Education


The district shall provide traffic safety instruction for eligible students. A fee shall be assessed to cover those costs which are not reimbursed by state funds, except that this fee may be waived or reduced for students whose families, by reason of their low income, would have difficulty paying the full fee. The USDA child nutrition program guidelines shall be used to determine qualification for a waiver or reduction.

The board directs the superintendent to implement procedures dealing with program supervision; curriculum development; student enrollment criteria, including but not limited to grade level of student, age of student and enrollment status of student; student progress; and collection and refunding of student fees, including provisions for accruing money for future traffic safety program needs or refunding students when student fees exceed the unreimbursed cost of the programs; and notice of the availability of fee waivers or reductions.
