Schools of Choice

The Collaborative Schools of Choice Program is a plan that offers parents and students a choice to attend other public schools in the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District outside their district of residence.  

School of Choice information for the 2018-2019 school year:

 

Students Living in Muskegon County (MAISD Collaborative Schools of Choice Program)

  • The 2018-2019 deadline for the MAISD Collaborative Schools of Choice Program for students residing in Muskegon County has passed.

There may be limited openings available via a release from your resident district.  The process for enrolling via a release is:

  1. Contact the Principal of the building you wish to enroll your child, and the Principal will let you know if space is available.
  2. If space is available, contact your resident district for a release.
  3. Once a release has been received by Montague Area Public Schools, the Principal will check on your student's discipline history and will let you know if we are able to accept your child.
