Northville Public Schools is accepting Schools of Choice applications under Section 105 and 105c of the Michigan School Aid Act for the 2017-18 school year. The availability is limited to five (5) openings in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program at Northville High School. Applications will be accepted beginning June 1, 2017 through 4 p.m. on June 19, 2017.
In accordance with the legislated requirements, and in order to support the District’s goal of excellence and equity for all students, a review of each prospective student applicant’s eligibility for the Diploma Program is required using the same criteria applied to prospective resident Diploma Program students.
The Northville Public Schools Section 105 and 105c (Non-Resident) Schools of Choice Application is available through the Office of Human Resources. Completed applications, including all forms and recommendations must be mailed or hand delivered to the Northville Public Schools Human Resources Department, 501 West Main Street, Northville, Michigan, 48167, by 4 p.m. on June 19, 2017. The district is unable to accept electronic applications.
Applicants found to be ineligible for the Diploma Program will be notified on or before June 30, 2017. Should the number of applications approved by the Diploma Program Review Team exceed the five (5) openings specified for Section 105 and 105c Schools of Choice students, the school district will use a random draw (lottery) to select the applicants who will be offered enrollment. If necessary, the lottery will take place at 8:30 a.m. on June 20, 2017 at the Northville Public Schools Board of Education offices, also located at 501 West Main Street, Northville, Michigan 48167. Families applying for limited Schools of Choice are welcome to attend the lottery drawing. Selected students will be informed regarding placement no later than June 30, 2017.
