Student Parking Policy and Decal Request Application 2015/16
To facilitate student parking and decal distribution, we are implementing this online Student Parking Process for the 2015/16 school year, for all juniors and seniors, and sophomores after September 24, 2015. There will be a total of 193 student parking spots; 120 of these are designated for seniors only. The remaining 73 spots will be available to either juniors or seniors on a first come, first served basis with no preference given to grade level. The deadline for junior and senior parking preference is September 24th, after which we will also accept parking requests from sophomore drivers if space permits.
North Broward Preparatory School students, who are licensed to drive, may drive and park on school premises as a matter of privilege, not of right. As such, the following processes and restrictions apply to students driving a vehicle to campus:
● Each vehicle must have an application form completed, accepted, and on file with NBPS.
● If the application is received by July, 27th, the parking decal will be mailed out in the summer mailer (YAAG).
● For applications received after July 27th, you will be notified when your permit will be ready to be picked up in person at Pushkin House, located by the gravel lot next to the security booth.
● The cost for the decal is $365, which be billed to the NBPS account on approval of the application.
● The color of decal will determine where the vehicle may be parked (details below).
● Parking without a decal is strictly prohibited.
● Decals must be clearly displayed on the lower inside windshield of the driver's side.
● If the student switches vehicles during the year, the decal must be transferred to the new vehicle by contacting the Security Office at email@example.com, who will facilitate the process.
♦ Parking Procedures ● Parking areas will be denoted as follows: • Seniors receiving a BLUE decal must park in the senior lot and enter through the north entrance. • Seniors receiving a GREEN decal must park in the spots along the canal painted gold and enter through the main entrance. • All drivers receiving a PURPLE decal must park in the remaining spots along the canal and enter through the main entrance. • All drivers receiving an ORANGE decal must park in the lot just east of the tennis courts and enter through the main entrance. • All drivers receiving a BLACK decal must park in the gravel lot north of Brown Hall and enter through the main entrance. ● Parking Restrictions: • Students may park anywhere in their designated lot, with the exception of reserved parking spots. • The School reserves the right to place warning notices, boot, or tow (at the owner's expense) any parked car without an appropriate decal or that is parked in a non- designated parking area or space. • If three warning notices for not adhering to designated parking areas have been placed on any one vehicle, or assigned to any one student, parking privileges may be lost for the remainder of the school year. • No refunds will be issued if parking privileges are revoked.
♦ Access to Vehicles: During the school day, vehicles and student parking lots are off limits to students without a pass from the Dean of Students, Principal, or Assistant Principal.
♦ Driving On or Leaving Campus: If a student is reported for driving in an unsafe or inconsiderate manner on campus, or violating any laws related to driving on or while leaving campus, a student's driving privileges may be revoked. In particular, when on campus: ● Observe the campus speed limit of 15 mph. ● Passengers must be safely seated and buckled within the vehicle. ● Do not carry more passengers than your vehicle's stated maximum capacity. ● Remain on paved roads only; do not pull on to the grass to avoid traffic. ● Only leave and enter the campus by the designated entrances.
♦ Early Dismissal For Student Drivers: A student may be signed out by a parent in person, or the student must provide a signed Early Dismissal Form for Student Drivers (found on the NBPS.org Web site) when they arrive at school. Completed forms must be submitted no later than 8:15 am and must contain a specific time and reason for dismissal along with a daytime contact telephone number for verification. The school will not accept parental permission for early dismissal by telephone, email, or fax.
♦ Consent: Any student who exercises driving and parking privileges gives consent to school authorities to conduct a search of the vehicle and its contents without notice or consent, and without a search warrant, irrespective of vehicle ownership. School authorities will conduct vehicle searches whenever there is reasonable suspicion to believe that illegal and/or unauthorized materials or contraband may be contained within.
**Please be aware that changes to designated parking locations will be made throughout the year as a result of ongoing construction in connection with this phase of the Campus Master Plan. You will be provided with updated information about these changes as they occur, as well as information about any traffic flow adjustments related to the construction.
