Driving & Parking
High School Driving Regulations
Driving to high school is a privilege granted to those students who obey school parking and driving regulations. This privilege will be offered to all students with a valid driver’s license.
The operation and parking of vehicles on school district property is regulated by the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code and policies of the CV School Board. In addition to disciplinary action under the Student Code of Conduct and School Board Policy, violators of regulations pertaining to the operation and parking of vehicles may be subject to prosecution.
Permission to drive may be revoked if students fail to adhere to school rules.
- Before any student will be permitted to register their car, they must satisfy all outstanding fines.

- Students have two weeks from the start of the school year to register their vehicle.
