School of Choice

The Schools of Choice program provide students with additional enrollment opportunities, allowing non-resident students to enroll in a district other than their own. 

Schools of Choice Program (Sections 105 and 105c)

The State School Aid Act provides each local school board with the option to participate in the state schools of choice program under sections 105 and 105c [MCL 388.1705 and 388.1705c]. The decision to participate in the program under one or both of the section(s) of this legislation is voluntary. Section 105 schools of choice programs provide students with the option to enroll in another school district that is within the same intermediate school district as their own. Section 105c schools of choice programs provide students with the option to enroll in a school district that is within another intermediate school district, but shares a boundary line with their intermediate school district. Under either section, districts may place a limit on the number of students that can enroll.

In addition, districts may also limit enrollment to specific grades, specific buildings, and/or programs. Districts determine the timeframe for accepting applications for their program, and will be the best resource for determining when to apply. Students are not required to obtain a release from their resident district to enroll through a Section 105 and/or 105c schools of choice program in the window.
