Digital Safety at Home

VOE (Verification of Enrollment)
A Verification of Enrollment (VOE) form, which the student will need to submit to DPS upon application for a driver license, can be requested online and picked up from the SHS office.
A student must meet the required requirements to obtain a VOE.
- met minimum attendance for credit (90% rule) in each class they were enrolled in semester,
- received credit for all courses taken in the previous semester, OR
- has complied with the conditions established by the school to receive the VOE form.
It might take a day or longer for us to issue your VOE, so it’s wise to request it about a week before you plan to head to the DPS. The issuance date on the VOE is important because the form expires after 30 days if you get it signed during the school year.
There have been some questions on VOE Procedures. VOEs are required to take your student permit testing at the DMV. To obtain a VOE you scan the QR Code (located in the main hall) (also attached above) and complete the requested information. When it is ready you will be contacted via email by Mrs. Mayo to pick up your VOE form at the Attendance Window in the main hall. VOE's CAN NOT be requested day of and EMAILED, or FAXED to a DMV location. Please be sure and request your form ahead of time so that you will have it ready.
