Parking Permit Class Requirement

In order to meet the SRVUSD parking permit requirement, beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, students must take a CHP Start Smart class at an SRVUSD school in order to be eligible to purchase a parking pass for the 2018-2019 school year. The student must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.


There are still opening at the classes held on March 22 at DVHS and April 17 at SRVHS. We will also be scheduling two additional classes in early August prior to passes going on sale at MVHS, DVHS and CHS. We will be releasing those dates as soon as we have confirmation.

Teen Driver Education Program to Emphasize Safety at San Ramon Valley Unified Schools

SRVUSD will implement a new system for students who wish to obtain on-campus parking permits that emphasizes traffic safety. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, the SRVUSD in partnership with Street Smarts and the California Highway Patrol (CHP)  will sponsor free two hour CHP Start Smart classes. Students and their parent/guardian must attend one free two hour CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit at all SRVUSD High Schools.  


The Start Smart presentations provide an opportunity for teens and their parents/guardians to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle.  The goal is to promote and create safe driving habits around SRVUSD schools. 


The Start Smart presentations will begin in the 2017-2018 year for parking pass eligibility in the 2018-19 school year. At this class, officers from the California Highway Patrol will discuss traffic avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities and seatbelt usage. All SRVUSD comprehensive high schools will offer 3-4 free classes each year that are open to anyone. The class must only be taken once during a student’s high school career.
