IHS Traffic Safety Education

The Fall session of the Issaquah High School Traffic Safety Education program will open for enrollment on Monday, August 19. The application is attached, but please keep in mind that the bookkeeper WILL NOT accept forms or payment until Monday, August 19.

Please download the attached registration form, fill it out, and bring it with payment to the bookkeeper. Enrollment is limited to the first 20 students that apply so sign up today. As soon as the bookkeeper has accepted your paperwork and money, you are enrolled in the program. You will then be able to go to the DOL 10 days prior to the first day of class to pick up your permit without taking the test.

There are NO scholarships for this class as it is an extra-curricular activity not required for graduation. However, we do offer a payment plan. Please email Mrs. Fortier if you are interested in breaking up the cost into smaller increments.

If you have any questions regarding the traffic safety program, please contact Brenda Fortier at
