    1. Does your school offer a drivers ed class.
    2. If so, how many teachers are there and how many periods do they teach?
    3. Do they have a driving range?
    4. How many and what kind of cars do they have?

    1. Yes
    2. There are 2 and they share one big classroom
    3. Yes they do
    4. They have six 2014 Ford Fusions and one is being ordered that had hand pedals for disabled students.

    All 10th graders take driver's ed as their "health" class in the first marking period only. There are 6 teachers---no actual driving though. They prepare them for the knowledge portion of the state test.

    We don't, but we used to. There was just one teacher. It was all classroom/book instruction, no actual behind-the-wheel instruction.

    My district offers drivers ed. Not sure about anything else though. I know they take the cars on the road, but anything else... your guess is as good as mine!

    Not anymore, the teacher retired two years ago and they didn't replace her because of the budget. Before that, they had the classroom teacher and two road instructors (2 cars).

    Our district (like the vast majority around here) gave up driver's education because of the cost of maintaining the program many years ago. I teach driver's ed after school for a private company. We have 1 classroom teacher (me), 1 full time in-car instructor, and 8 part time in-car instructors. We have four 2012 Toyota Corollas, but we're getting new ones this summer.

    We do not have a driving range. We use private parking lots and public roads for the in-car lessons.

    I don't think there are any high schools in Arizona that offer driver's education. I really wish they would offer it.
