Farmington Public Schools opens K-8 Choice applications

Farmington Public Schools will accept Section 105 Schools of Choice applications from Oakland County Intermediate School District residents beginning Monday, April 9, through Friday, April 27, at 4 p.m. for openings in Kindergarten through eighth grade for the 2018-2019 school year.

Farmington Public Schools will place Intra-District Transfer students and PA227 Non-resident Employees’ students first. Remaining Kindergarten through eighth grade spaces, not to exceed 2018-2019 staffing levels/ratios, will then be opened up for Section 105. The following seats will be available:

• 40 seats open at Kindergarten

• 20 seats open at each level, first through eighth grade

• no open seats at the high school level

In order to support the District’s goal of excellence and equity for all students, the granting of choice is balanced with the need to provide an equitable and appropriate enrollment in all of our schools. Final placement will be determined based on current enrollment, projected enrollment, 2018-2019 staffing levels/ratios, and the number of applications received for each school/level.

If the number of applications received for a given school/level exceeds the number of available openings, a private lottery will be held on Wednesday, May 9, at 8:30 a.m.

Online applications will be available beginning Monday, April 9, on the Farmington Public Schools’ website, farmington.k12.mi.us. A paper copy application will be available at the Lewis Schulman Administrative Center, 32500 Shiawassee, Farmington.

Applications for Section 105 (Oakland County ISD) Schools of Choice for the 2018-2019 school year must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 27. No applications will be honored after the deadline.
