Schools of Choice

Schools Of Choice

The Collaborative Schools of Choice Program is a plan that offers parents and students a choice to attend other public schools in the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District outside their district of residence. 

Application Process:
 

  • Applications for School of Choice are offered each Spring for the following school year during what is called and "open enrollment" period.  This period runs from the second of week April to the Friday before Memorial Day. A link for an electronic application is "live" during the open enrollment period. If you would rather fill out a paper application contact Michelle Pulver at 231-893-1010. 
  • Parents will be notified of acceptance or denial no later than July 1.
  • There is no guarantee that space will be available in the building selected.

What Happens If I Want to Enroll After the Deadline? 

Once the Spring window has closed for open enrollment, there still may be openings available via a release from your resident district.  The process for enrolling via a release is:

  1. Contact your resident district's Superintendent's office to request a district release for your child.
  2. Have the release sent to Whitehall's Superintendent office. 
  3. Once received, administrator's will review the release and let you know if your child will be accepted.
