School district offers 5 Schools of Choice openings

Applications for the Northville Public Schools of Choice for the 2020-21 school will be accepted through 4 p.m. June 5.
Availability of the school of choice classes, under Section 105 and 105c of the Michigan School Aid Act, is limited to five incoming juniors applying for the full diploma program, according to a prepared statement from the district.

In an effort to support the district goal of excellence and equity for all students, and in compliance with the law,  review of each prospective applicant's eligibility for the diploma program is required using the same criteria applied to prospective resident diploma program students. Applications are available through the district office of human resources, 405 West Main St., Northville. No electronic applications will be accepted. 
Applicants found to be ineligible for the diploma program will be notified on or before June 19.  Should the number of applications approved by the diploma program review team exceed the five openings specified, the school district will use a random lottery to select the applicants who will be offered enrollment. If necessary, the lottery will take place at 8:30 a.m. June 17 at the Northville Public Schools Board of Education offices, also located at 405 West Main St.. Families applying for enrollment can attend the lottery drawing.
Details regarding the lottery procedures, the Schools of Choice application, and answers to frequently asked questions about the Section 105 and 105c Schools of Choice option are available on the district website.
Once a student is accepted under Section 105 or 105c, he or she may continue to be enrolled in Northville Public Schools until graduation or until he or she withdraws from the program.
