How are applicants chosen to enroll in Okemos Public Schools?
The application asks very basic information (name, grade, address, district of residence, whether there have been suspensions or expulsions). For grade levels where the number of applications received is less than the number of advertised slots, all applicants will be accepted (except as provided by law regarding suspensions or expulsions). For grade levels that more applications are received than advertised slots, the law requires that districts accept students on a lottery basis (except as provided by law regarding suspensions or expulsions). Siblings of current Schools of Choice students receive preference to available slots over new applicants. Okemos Public Schools has a limited number of openings in each grade level. The number of spots available changes each year and is based on class size limits.
