    Behind the Wheel Notice 

    At this time, all BTW operations for LCPS are still suspended – However, we have gotten approval to exchange paperwork. Please complete this survey to request signed DEC-8’s and TDL’s in the mail and allow at least 7 - 10 business days for processing and receipt. To access the survey, you must use your LCPS email address. If you need assistance, please contact Ms. Torick at Lisa.Torick@lcps.org. We monitor and evaluate this decision regularly based on information from DOE, DMV, and the Governor’s Office as it’s made available. LCPS will resume in-car instruction when it is safe to do so.
