The Plymouth-Canton Community Schools Board of Education passed a limited Schools of Choice resolution Tuesday, February 11, opening up a minimum of one seat for kindergarten through eighth grade with a maximum of 250 seats for the 2020-21 school year. For the fourth consecutive year, the district will enroll students through the school of choice provisions in Section 105 and 105c, which means that families from Wayne County and all surrounding counties (Washtenaw, Macomb, Oakland, Monroe) are welcome to apply.
As part of the resolution, and similar to last year, the District will first open a one-time intra-district (for resident P-CCS students) transfer application process to begin March 11. Similar to School of Choice placements, intra-district transfers will only be available for open seats; however, they will be considered before School of Choice placements are made.
The online School of Choice application window will be open from Thursday, March 12 to Saturday, April 11 and can be found at www.pccsk12.com beginning on March 12 at midnight. All applications will be considered after the April 11 deadline; the application window closes at 11:59 p.m. EST on that day. The actual number of School of Choice students enrolled into P-CCS from outside of the District will depend on availability.
Applicants that are siblings of current P-CCS School of Choice students will be given sibling preference according to state law, as long as the applicant is a student entering Kindergarten through 8th grade for the 2020-21 school year.
Like previous School of Choice programs, this addition will not displace any current resident P-CCS students.
More details and important dates regarding the application process for both the intra-district process and the limited School of Choice program for non-resident families will be available in the near future at the official Plymouth-Canton Schools website found at www.pccsk12.com, as well as all of the District’s social media outlets.
