Frequently Asked Questions

Can a Junior obtain a parking pass? Yes. If you have a valid driver's license, you are eligible for a parking pass. Permits are assigned to seniors first, then juniors.

My student drives more than one car to campus. Can I obtain more parking permits to put on various cars? No. We only provide students with one valid parking pass. If another car is brought to campus they must obtain a daily parking pass from the attendance office and display it on the dashboard. Failure to do so may result in ticketing.

What if my student throws away or loses parking tickets? Parking tickets are issued per SRVUSD and vehicle code. Unpaid parking tickets are tracked by the DMV and may result in a higher registration fee.

What if I have not completed the Start Smart course and I am signed up for a class in September? You are not eligible to purchase a permit until this step is completed. If you inadvertently register without attending the course, your money will be refunded and your application denied.  Please check the SRVUSD Smart Start page for more details.

My child will not be able to take their driving test until later in the year. Can I still purchase a parking pass now and have them pick it up when they pass the test? Unfortunately, no. Students may only register for parking passes if they have a valid license and have completed the Start Smart course.

What if I move to Monte Vista mid-year? Eligible applicants may apply for a parking permit until all the permits are sold out.
