The time has come for my oldest to take drivers ed....
It doesn't look like she will be able to take it through the school district, so I'm seeking out other alternatives. I know it can be done online, too, so any comments about how that worked out will be greatly appreciated, too. Thanks!

We ordered the parent taught package online for $20 (it is a TON of information). It seemed a little overwhelming so we opted to do it half and half. We parent taught the driving portion and sent her to a driving school for the classroom part.

The cost for the driving school to do ALL of it was $300. The way we did it was $150. It worked out good for us.

Good luck. oh yea, and start saving now for your new insurance premium

We did the parent taught course too. It's not for everyone and it's not easy. We took our time and spread it out over about 6 months then still made her wait to get her license until I thought she was ready.

Every child is different, do what your comfortable with.

You're in the 10/1604 area right?

I'd go with Ayala Driving School right across from Clark. I think they're like 24/7 during the summer. I think they they have classes in the morning and afternoon during the summer. If you do end up sending your kids there the hardest driving instructor is Mr. Ayala himself. I avoided him like the plague (just watch the color coding when they sign up for driving). Oh the memories!
