MANDATORY E-VEHICLE SAFETY & REGISTRATION PROGRAM
To help support the safe and responsible use of e-vehicles (e-bikes, e-scooters and e-skateboards), Irvine Unified School District middle and high schools have partnered with the Irvine Police Department (IPD) and will host safety presentations as part of IUSD’s new mandatory e-vehicle registration program.
Middle and high school students who travel to and from school using an electric vehicle are required to attend one of the following e-Vehicle Safety Presentations by IPD.
Please note: Middle school parent/guardian attendance is required to learn the rules and expectations of using e-vehicles safely and responsibly. As our vital partners, your support is critical to helping keep students safe.
Students will learn:
- About the different e-vehicles
- Rules of the road and e-bike laws
- Helmet safety
- Rules for e-bike passengers
- How to avoid distracted operation of e-vehicles
- Safety concerns
- IUSD’s mandatory registration program and school procedures

NHS E-BIKE, E-SCOOTER & E-SKATEBOARD POLICY:
