The focus is to help young drivers adopt safer driving practices, take responsibility for their behavior in various driving situations, and to be aware of many of the typical driving hazards. Also, it is mandatory that Crestwood High School students that wish to drive to school participate in this class. They are only required to take this course once during their high school career. The next Alive at 25 course is on May 20th, and the Driver Safety Course for Crestwood’s rules and regulations is on April 26th; you can sign up for both with Mr. Nickens in room 4508.
