Fort Wayne Community Schools is offering a fall session of driver education for the first time. FWCS will offer the program from Sept. 8-Oct. 27 at Anthis Career Center, 1200 S. Barr St. Times offered are 4-6 p.m. or 6:30-8:30 p.m. The courses are open to any student, whether they attend FWCS or not, who is at least 15 years old before the session he or she enrolls in begins. The student also must be currently enrolled and in good standing with a high school. The State of Indiana requires perfect attendance to receive Driver Education Certification; therefore, students with conflicts during class hours, such as extracurricular activities or jobs, should not enroll. Students can enroll in classroom only instruction, which is $75, driving instruction and road rest, which is $275, or both for $350. For more information, visit the FWCS Web site at or call 467-1089. Enrollment deadline for the fall sessions is Sept. 4. Additional courses will be offered in the spring.

With nearly 30,000 students, Fort Wayne Community Schools is one of the largest school districts in Indiana. FWCS proudly allows families to choose any of its 50 schools through its successful school-choice program creating diversity in each school, including some with more than 75 languages spoken. FWCS offers seven magnet schools focusing on areas such as science and math, communication, fine arts or Montessori at the elementary and middle school level. In high school, students can choose from the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, Project Lead the Way or New Tech Academy as well as other rigorous academic and specialty training programs.
