Schools of Choice
To provide a quality education for all students in Monroe County, the Monroe County Schools of Choice Program is offered by the Monroe County Intermediate School District in cooperation with its constituent districts. This program allows parents and students the choice to attend any public school in Monroe County, regardless of where they live.
Remember, a student must be released by his/her resident district.
Schools of Choice Process
• Student applicant and parents complete application and file it with the RESIDENT district.
• Application is reviewed to determine if student meets guidelines to participate in the program.
• Students who do not qualify are notified by the RESIDENT district and the process ends.
• For the student who does qualify, the RESIDENT district signs the application and forwards it to the CHOICE district.
• The CHOICE district informs applicant whether or not space is available at the district. This communication is copied and sent to the RESIDENT district so all parties know who has been accepted by the CHOICE district.
• If space is not available, the family is notified and the process ends.
• For students accepted by the CHOICE district, parents/guardians MUST formally enroll the student.

Excerpt from the MHSAA Webiste
A new Sport-Specific Transfer rule takes effect next year and is based on participation in sports THIS YEAR. A student who does not meet an exception (e.g. full residential change) and transfers to another school will not be eligible in any sport he or she played this year (scrimmage or game) in the next season. In sports not played in the previous season, the student would be eligible. Current Transfer Rule Summary | New Sport-Specific Transfer Rule
