Coopersville Area Public Schools
105/105c Schools of Choice Application
2024-25 School Year
Applications will be accepted: February 1 – August 16, 2024
Coopersville Area Public Schools participates in both the Section 105 and 105c Schools of Choice state plans which allows non-resident students to enroll in the District in accordance with the State School Aid Act. Non-resident students residing in districts within the OAISD and the contiguous boundaries of the OAISD (Muskegon, Kent, and Allegan ISDs) may apply for enrollment. Once a student is accepted, annual re-application is not required.
Coopersville is not required to provide transportation for Schools of Choice students.
Eligibility to participate in interscholastic athletic contests is subject to the policies and eligibility rules of the enrolling school district and the MHSAA. These regulations require a 60-day waiting period for students in grades 10 – 12 after enrolling in a new district under Schools of Choice before they are eligible to participate in athletics.
Coopersville Area Public Schools may deny enrollment to a non-resident applicant if any of the following apply:
- The applicant is or has been, within the preceding two years, suspended from a school.
- The applicant has been expelled or withdrawn in lieu of expulsion from another district.
- The applicant has been convicted of a felony.
Below are some specific guidelines that apply to the 105c Program
(These guidelines will be applied in accordance with Section 105c of the Revised School Code)
Transfers are subject to the requirement of Section 105c of the Michigan School Code which requires a written agreement with the contiguous intermediate school district for the provision of any added costs of special education services and programs. If a student enrolled under Section 105c is eligible or becomes eligible for special education services following enrollment, the enrolling district and the district of residence must have a written agreement regarding the payment of added costs of special education programs and services for the student to continue to be enrolled by the non-resident district.
