Juab School District board members have raised the fees for many students taking adult drivers education classes to $15.
In the past, evening class students have paid different fee rates. Several years ago, adults without a high school diploma were able to take the classes without a fee. Later, the ruling was slightly modified, allowing certain high school students to also take the classes free of charge.Last year, high school graduates - known as community education students - were charged $12 per class.
Now, non-graduates will still be able to take the classes free of charge, but all other students will pay $15 per 18 hours of instruction.
Board members also agreed to charge high school students $25 per class to retake classes they failed during regular school hours. They said the fee is justified because such students add to the teacher load and have already had an opportunity to take the class.
Board members also voted to increase the salary for the extended day certified instructors who haven't received a raise for a number of years.
