Farmington school board talks School of Choice options

Farmington Public Schools trustees will on December 17 talk about options for resident and non-resident School of Choice applications.

During their 6 p.m. Tuesday study session, officials will discuss these recommendations from the Schools of Choice Options Committee, which includes school administrators, district staff members, and a parent:

  • Intra-District (resident) School of Choice applications: Open for kindergarten through eighth grade only
  • PA 227 (non-resident employee): Open for all grade levels
  • Section 105 School of Choice (non-resident students from Oakland County):
    • After placement of Intra-District and PA 227 students, remaining kindergarten through eighth grade spaces, not to exceed 2020-21 staffing levels/ratios, to be opened for Section 105
    • 25 spots open K-8 at each level (total of 225). Waitlist, if applicable, maintained for up to 40 seats at each level
    • Grades 9 – 12 would be closed to Section 105 School of Choice
