SHS Parking Permits for 2020-21
All sophomores, juniors and seniors who are already licensed drivers are eligible to apply and obtain a Solon High School parking permit by registering online beginning Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
Please note: Students who have not yet received their license may not purchase or apply for a permit until they have their license. Permits WILL NOT be held or reserved for any students. Permits will only be sold and issued to the registered student (No friends or family members may pick up the permit for them). Please be sure to the follow the instructions and deadline for the new educational requirement on Ohio’s Graduated Driving License law for all students purchasing a parking permit outlined later in this message.
To apply for your 2020-21 parking permit, students should go to the Solon High School page on the district web site at www.solonschools.org and look for 2020-21 SHS Parking Passes under the “Quick Links” section on the right side of the page. Click on “Parking Permit Application Website” and follow the step-by-step instructions.
Then, to pay for your permit, please log into your EZpay account (when you complete the registration form, you will be automatically directed to the EZpay site). You will find the Parking Permit purchase option under the Activity Fees link. If you do not have an EZpay account, you may register your child on the EZpay site at this time.
All past due fees and fines must be paid before registering online.
TO PURCHASE YOUR PARKING PERMIT IN EZPAY:
- Click on the Activity Fees link.
- Click on the Parking Permit option.
- Select which student is purchasing the permit. If junior and senior students in the same family are purchasing permits for two family cars, this can be accomplished with one transaction. Be sure that both students complete the online registration form.
- Add the permits to the payment basket.
- Proceed to check out.
- Pay for the permits by credit card using the EZpay system. The cost is $15. (No cash or checks will be accepted)
- Print EZpay receipt (must show your name and that payment was made for a parking permit).
You may also add money to students’ lunch accounts during this same transaction. Simply click on Return to Payment Center prior to completing the transaction and add the amount of lunch money you wish add. Then, select the Click to Checkout option with the shopping cart icon on the right of the screen. You will have the opportunity to review your transaction. If all information is correct, click on Quick Checkout and complete the transaction.
→ All drivers must also complete an educational module on Ohio’s Graduated Driving License Law to receive a Solon High School parking permit. We encourage parents and students to watch the module and take the quiz together to improve understanding of the GDL law and the risks of teen driving. The module outlines elements of Ohio’s Graduated Driving License, including: Passenger Limits, Night-Time Driving, Mandatory Seat Belt Use and No Electronic Devices.
The module takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The school will receive confirmation that students have completed module after they take the online quiz and sign and submit the safe driving pledge at the end of the module.
IMPORTANT: Students must complete the GDL educational module by midnight Tuesday, October 13. Students will not be able to pick up a permit if they have not completed the GDL module.
To access the GDL module, use the following link:

Students will need to show their license, proof of insurance, vehicle registration and printed EZpay receipt to pick up their permit. The EZpay receipt must show the student’s name and that payment was made for a parking permit (No cash or checks will be accepted). Expired or outdated documents are not accepted.
Please remember that parking on campus is a privilege, not a right. The student responsibilities related to parking at SHS are attached. These are the same rules that are detailed in the student handbook.
