At the council meeting Mrs. Watt said that there will not be any driving age students next year at the charter school if it opens. That is incorrect. Sophomores in high school are 15. This is the legal age to have a driving permit in Florida. During the sophomore year most, if not all, turn 16. Therefore, there will be many students with driving permits and some with an actual driving license. As a parent, I would feel more comfortable allowing my child to drive to a school on the island before allowing them to drive 951 in their first year of driving. Hence, more students driving to this school than the off island schools. I assume that her statements were made from a lack of knowledge and not a purposeful lie?
