Gainesville district enjoys impressive enrollment increase in summer school

Times photo / Norene Prososki A driver’s education class is being offered in Gainesville’s summer school program for the first time in several years. Participating students include, from right, Holley Stevens, Zach Botts, Andrew Botts and Wesley Stevens. District superintendent Jeff Hyatt, left, teaches the course. Hyatt told the Times he has been a driver’s ed driving instructor for 28 years. When the Times asked if he’d had any scary experiences in his nearly three decades of riding with student drivers, he quipped, “Nerves of steel!”

Summer school classes have begun around the county, and the Gainesville R-V District is especially proud of its increased attendance figures this year.
