What is School of Choice?
School of Choice is an opportunity for students who live in Michigan but are not residents of the Morenci Area Schools district to attend Morenci Area Schools.

When is the best time to apply for School of Choice?
The best time to apply for School of Choice is before the start of the new school year or semester. Families can begin applying as early as April. Morenci Area Schools will accept applications during the application periods noted above.  If you are interested in attending Morenci Area Schools outside of the dates listed please contact the school secretary to discuss options.

Do I need permission from my home district to apply for School of Choice?
No, School of Choice applications completed and turned in before the first Friday of the first week of school do not need a release from the resident district. Applications made after the first Friday of the first week of school will need a release from their home district. Morenci Area Schools will complete the resident district release form and apply it to your home district on your behalf.

How do I find out if my child (ren) have been approved or denied?
Once you have filled out and submitted the school of choice application the application and student discipline records will be reviewed. You will be contacted with a final decision and the next steps once that process is complete.eps.

Do we have to apply for School of Choice each year?
No. Once accepted as a School of Choice, those students are guaranteed a place in our schools through high school graduation.

Do you provide transportation for out-of-district students?
School of Choice students residing in Michigan are provided the opportunity to use the Morenci Area Schools transportation system, free of charge, to and from any established Morenci Area Schools bus stop.

We are confident that you and your child will love Morenci Area Schools.  Our small class sizes, caring and supportive staff, and commitment to educating the whole child help us to fulfill the district mission to graduate students with excellent academic foundations, character, and an awareness of professional and career opportunities so that they can positively influence society
