CHS Student Parking Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Why do I have to take Alive @ 25 to park at CHS? Clover schools have lost three students to car accidents in the last five years. We are committed to doing all we can to keep our students safe behind the wheel and to save lives. The Clover School Board approved this initiative in 2012, and CHS joins over 100 SC high schools requiring Alive at 25 for parking on campus. York County is the first county with full participation from all high schools in all county districts.
When you arrive at registration, you will need to present your license and registration card(s) for verification. If you complete Alive @ 25 close to school registration dates, you will need to provide proof of completion. Clover HS keeps information on file when students complete Alive @ 25. You will only need to provide proof when we do not have completion information on file. All students receive a certificate when Alive @ 25 is completed. Certificates are distributed when school is in session. Students who complete the course during the summer will receive their certificate when we return to school.
2) Can I request a specific Parking Spot? No. Students will be assigned a parking spot based on grade and availability.
3) Does it matter if I purchased my permit on the first day the window opened? Students will be assigned a parking spot based on availability. Fulfillment of the parking permit will take place at the end of July to early August.

8) Do I have to pay for a parking pass with a credit card using the online system? No. Cash and Check payments will be accepted in person at registration.

9) I will not get my license until December, Can I purchase a parking pass now? Yes. In fact, this is encouraged. Students may purchase parking permits during the open window even if they have not completed Alive @ 25 or have a valid drivers license. We will hold the parking permit until all requirements have been satisfied. This will eliminate the risk of you missing out on a parking permit. Last year we had to stop selling permits on February 1st because we reached capacity. Purchase during the summer to make sure you receive a parking permit.

12) How do I register for Alive at 25 courses? Students must register directly with Alive at 25. CHS will host some courses but does not administer them in any way. To enroll for all Alive at 25 courses, go to http://www.scaliveat25.org/, choose the “Classes” tab on the top menu, then you can use the search function by typing in “Clover” or your local zip code to find local course offerings. Once you locate your course, click “enroll” and follow directions. You must pre-register for all Alive at 25 courses.
13) Why are Freshman and 9th Grade repeaters not allowed to purchase parking permits? With the opening of the 9th Grade Campus, there is no dedicated student parking on that campus. We do not want our students from 9th Grade campus parking in the 10-12 student parking lot and walking to the 9th Grade Campus. Students with 9th-grade repeater status will be able to purchase a parking permit once they have recovered or completed necessary courses to move them to 10th-grade status.
14) Are there rules about the student parking lot? Yes, specific rules and regulations may be found in the CHS student handbook or by going to the “Student Parking Page”. DRIVING TO SCHOOL IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT. This privilege may be suspended or revoked if the rules are not obeyed, or if behavior at school indicates that you are not responsible enough to deserve this privilege.
15) Can my car be searched while on campus? Yes, in order to maintain a reasonable and safe school environment, the Clover High School Administration reserves the right to search a vehicle on school property and seize any property within the vehicle, which violates state law, school regulations, or may be harmful to any person.
