The Miller Place school district plans to bring a driver’s education program back to the district after roughly 10 years without it.
At the Feb. 25 budget meeting, Superintendent Marianne Higuera included a summer pilot driver’s education program in the budget — at no cost to the district. She said course fees would cover the cost of the self-sustaining program.
The district decided to add the program back as there is no location in Miller Place for students to take driver’s education. Currently, they must travel to neighboring districts or schools to participate.
No details have been made regarding the program, but the district expects to have more information at the end of May.
