What is the School of Choice program?
Under the schools-of-choice program, parents can send their children to a public school outside of their home district, provided there is room in the choice district and that district approves the transfer. In Shiawassee County, there is cooperation between districts that allows students their choice of virtually any school in the county.Why is Corunna "A School of Choice?"
How does it work?
- Strong discipline policy
- Tremendous learning environment
- Small class sizes
- Low teacher to student ratio
- Lots of individual attention for students
- High academic expectations
- Extracurricular activities
- Clean and safe environment for all students
- Mission to prepare students for college and /or careers
- Opportunity for students to gain high school credit
- Lost of parental involvement
- Highly qualified staff
Parents must apply to the district and provide proof of residency. If there is available space in the district the student would be permitted to attend providing there has been no suspension or expulsion of the student from another district. There is no tuition to pay. Because schools throughout Shiawassee County mutually endorse schools of choice, state funds are transferred to the Corunna program for students who transfer from anywhere in the county.When can I apply?
You can apply at any time for schools of choice. Students will only be accepted at the beginning of a school year or at semester break.How do I apply?
