The Checkpoints Program provides parents brief instruction and structure to help them use effective parenting techniques to establish driving rules, consequences for non-compliance, and jointly reach a parent-teen agreement with their teens. This program is designed for all teens who are about to drive independently or who have begun driving independently. The registration/completion should coincide with anticipated independent driving dates as closely as possible. For most students, this will be age 16. The Checkpoints Program is required for students who have had their license less than a year, according to issue date on driver licenses, and wish to receive a parking permit at their respective Williamson County School.

There is no initial sign-up to participate; just arrive to the BHS Library during one of the following dates/times. Both student and parent are required to be present. The following dates for the Checkpoints program are:

  • January 15, 2020 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM
  • January 22, 2020 from 3:00 – 4:00 PM

(Arrive no later than 10 min before start time)
