FREE Meals and Curbside Food Pick-Up for ALL Students

Learn more about FREE meals for ALL children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops.

While children are learning from home, Centennial Schools will safely give out meals to children, ages 18 and younger, through curbside pick-up and at designated bus stops. 

This means everyone can have nutritious meals each day. Participating in meal pick-ups helps both families and our school. More participation means more kids eating nutritious foods and funding for our school’s nutrition program. 

We have expanded the food service,
so please stop by and pick up meals for your students!

Driver Education

Centennial Community Education Driver Education Logo

 

11/20/20As a result of the recent Governor's order to limit social gatherings and establishments in response to the current unprecedented spread of the virus we are implementing a pause in our Behind the Wheel program. Even though driver education programs were not specifically named in the order we feel it is in keeping with the spirit of the order and in the best interest of students, instructors, and families to institute this pause.

If you have lesson times and dates currently scheduled your instructor will reach out directly with you regarding a plan for rescheduling in the future. If you do not have specific dates arranged currently please know there will be a delay in hearing from an instructor. 

We will reevaluate conditions prior to December 18 and be back in touch with you directly as to our plans.

We have checked with the State of Minnesota and understand that there currently has not been an impact to license centers.

Please let us know if you have any questions, we apologize for the inconvenience this will cause, but hope that you may understand our decision.

-Sharon Sculley, Driver Education Coordinator Centennial Community Education 


Classroom and behind-the-wheel sessions offered year round

Learn to drive safely and with confidence in preparation for your Minnesota provisional driver’s license. Participants begin with 30-hours of in-class instruction to prepare for the knowledge (instruction permit) test. Next step is to enroll in a behind-the-wheel program. Participants will then receive a certificate of enrollment and classroom completion card (blue card) allowing them to take their knowledge test. Pass the test and finish the process by completing 6 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction.  All instructors are licensed teachers and licensed driver education teachers.

Classroom

The first phase of driver education, 30 hours of in-class instruction, prepares students for the knowledge (instruction permit) test. Students increase their understanding of basic skills, principles, and processes of responsible driving. Areas of concentration include driver's rights and responsibilities, alcohol and other drugs, signs-signals-road markings, rules of the road, safe driving tips, Minnesota traffic laws, and limitations for teen drivers. Participants missing class must wait for the next classroom series to make up missed time.

Behind-the-Wheel (BTW)

The second phase of driver education consists of six hours of hands-on instruction. Students MUST have passed their knowledge test and received their driver permit in order to begin BTW. Register early to get the session that fits your schedule. Registration is first come, first serve.

Supervised Driving Log

Message from MN Driver and Vehicle Services: 

Driver and Vehicle Services is preparing for a smooth rollout of REAL ID on October 1, 2018. Due to increased workloads leading up to the rollout, they are already experiencing longer processing times for driver’s licenses and instruction permits. In order to provide the best possible customer service, DVS is increasing the time period that application receipts (yellow customer copy) are valid. They will now be valid for 120 days instead of the usual 60 days. All applications will be affixed with a label stating “This receipt is valid for 120 days from date of application.”  

Anyone who had applied previously, and the 60 days is about to expire, can go to a driver’s license office for the extension label to be put on their application. This will extend the receipt an additional 60 days from the date they made application.


Online Registration

 

Legislation effective January, 2015 creates a "primary driving supervisor" who will supervise a teen for a majority of their required driving hours; adds an optional supplemental parental course; requires teens to present a driving log to the exam station at the time of the road test; and increases the number of driving hours for teens on an instruction permit to 50 hours, with 15 hours at night. If a parent/guardian takes the parental course it reduces required driving to 40 hours, with 15 at night. MN Statute 2012

Point of Impact (Parents and their new teen drivers)

Newly licensed teen drivers are not necessarily safe drivers. Parents are the first and best source for teaching their children. Safe driving skills are developed over time and a parent's role continues even after they receive their license. Traffic crashes are the leading killer of Minnesota teens. Inexperience, distraction, risk taking and poor seat belt compliance are the primary factors. Learn the importance of playing a role in developing the safe driving skills of your youth. View a video that presents stories of Minnesota youth and families impacted by crashes.

Participation reduces required practice driving time from 50 to 40 hours. The hours are recorded on the newly required driving log that must be submitted prior to taking the driver test.

Point of Impact classes are offered once a year.
