Schools of Choice - K-12 Non-Resident EnrollmentTop of Page

Cedar Springs Public Schools participates in both the Kent Intermediate School District Schools of Choice Plan and the Section 105c State plan. All students residing within the Kent Intermediate School District may apply for enrollment in any Kent ISD school that has available openings during the advertised timeframe (usually open during the spring). Students who reside in a district that is within a different ISD that borders the Kent ISD, may also apply under the Section 105c plan depending on available openings. Students who have been suspended or expelled may be excluded. Applications will be made available at our administration building, or on our website in April, 2017.

Special Considerations for Parents & Students Considering Schools of ChoiceTop of Page

  • Transportation is not provided for Schools of Choice students; parents must provide their own transportation.
  • The Michigan High School Athletic Association requires students in grades 10 - 12 to wait one semester after enrolling in a new district (under Schools of Choice) before they can participate in athletics.
  • Michigan law and the Kent Intermediate Superintendents' Association agree that siblings should be kept together in a single district whenever possible. As a result, siblings of current School of Choice students may receive preference in filling district openings.
  • A written agreement between the resident district and the Choice district must be in place regarding students who apply through the Schools of Choice 105c and receive special education services/programs as to the responsibility of payment for the added costs of required services/programs for the student.
