Kenowa Hills participates in both the Kent Intermediate School District Schools of Choice Plan and the Section 105c State plan. All students residing within the Kent Intermediate School District may apply for enrollment in any Kent ISD school that has available openings during the advertised time frame. Students who reside in a district that is within a different ISD that borders the Kent ISD, may also apply under the Section 105c plan depending on available openings. Students who have been suspended or expelled may be excluded. Applications have been made available below as of April 13.
Special Notice for the 2020-21 School Year
The Kent ISD School of Choice application may be submitted beginning April 13, 2020 for school districts accepting online applications. Due to the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order (EO 2020-21), which directs all Michigan businesses and operations to temporarily suspend in-person operations until 11:59 p.m. on April 13, paper and in-person applications will not be accepted until the closure order is lifted. We recognize that this presents a challenge for those without internet access and school districts which only accept paper applications. As a result, the application closing window, originally scheduled for May 15, 2020 at 4:00 p.m., will be extended to August 24, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. Please know that the application process is not on a first come, first served basis, so there is no advantage for those who are able to submit applications online when the window opens on April 13.
Tenga en cuenta que: Para aquellos distritos que aceptan solicitudes en línea, la Solicitud del Plan de la Escuela de Elección de Kent ISD se puede entregar a partir del 13 de abril de 2020. Sin embargo, debido al Decreto Ejecutivo "Quedarse en Casa, Permanecer Seguro" (DE 2020-21), que ordena que todos los negocios y operaciones de Michigan suspendan temporalmente las operaciones en persona hasta las 11:59 p.m. el 13 de abril, las solicitudes en papel y en persona no serán aceptadas hasta que se levante el decreto de cierre. Reconocemos que esto presenta un desafío para aquellos sin acceso a internet y distritos escolares que solo aceptan solicitudes en papel. Como resultado, el último momento para aceptar las solicitudes, originalmente programada para el 15 de mayo de 2020 a las 4:00 p.m., se extenderá en consecuencia. No se ha determinado una fecha final para aceptar las solicitudes hasta que se conozca más información sobre el estado de la reapertura de las operaciones escolares. Tenga en cuenta que el proceso de solicitud no se realiza por orden de llegada, por lo que no hay ninguna ventaja para aquellos que pueden enviar solicitudes en línea cuando se empiece a aceptar solicitudes el 13 de abril. Vuelva a visitar este sitio web con respecto a la fecha final para presentar solicitudes.
