TO FAMILIES OF THETFORD ACADEMY STUDENTS-
Let me introduce myself. My name is Rich Kearney I'm a full-time Vermont educator who teaches high school in the Upper Valley and I'm also the owner of Upper Valley Driving Academy (UVDA). UVDA is a Vermont Department of Motor Vehicle licensed driver training school certified to provide standard driver education to Vermont residents.
It has come to my attention that Thetford Academy families will not be offered Driver Education when students and their families choose course selections of the upcoming '17-'18 academic year. Although the Academy offers assurances to families that they'll restructure their driver education program in cooperation with Orange East Supervisory Union, what that program will look like and when it will resume remains uncertain.
As owner of UVDA I'm committed to providing high quality driver education and traffic safety instruction to Vermont families of the Upper Valley. At UVDA the goal is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and ability to lead a lifetime of collision free driving.
Being well acquainted with both the Thetford Academy and the River Bend Career & Technical Center driver education programs, UVDA will be offering private driver education services in Thetford this Summer. Dates and times will be determined based upon student needs.
Owner, Upper Valley Driving Academy
