Due to a limited number of Forrest Center parking spots, only Virtual Academy, Chopticon and Great Mills High School students can apply for a permanent Forrest Center parking pass. Chopticon and Great Mills High School students must have already completed the safe driving course and have been given a parking permit at their home school BEFORE applying for a Forrest Center parking pass.
This form must be completed, electronically signed by the student and parent/guardian, and APPROVED by the Forrest Center Administration at least 2 (TWO) school days prior to obtaining a student permanent/temporary parking permit. You will be charged $10.00 if you're approved for a temporary parking pass when the permit is obtained. Money will be refunded upon return of the permit to the Forrest Center's front office secretary.
If your Forrest Center Parking Permit request is approved by the Forrest Center Administration, the $50.00 Forrest Center permanent parking permit fee can be paid using MySchoolBucks, cash, or check (made out to Dr. James A. Forrest Career & Technology Center) brought to Ms. Mayor in the Forrest Center front office. Please call the Front Desk at 301-475-0242 for more information.
*** COMPLETION OF THIS APPLICATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE A PARKING PERMIT***
