~ Resident Open Enrollment

Resident Open Enrollment
This program is available for elementary school students ONLY.  Middle and high school students must attend the middle or high school their address assigns them to.  If you wish to verify building assignments, please use our interactive boundary map, available HERE.

Resident Open Enrollment application window for the 2024/25 school year will be open from January 26 - February 28, 2024.

Parents who would like their child(ren) to participate in the Resident Open Enrollment Program must apply by completing an application form for each child.  Parents are responsible for providing transportation for students choosing to participate in Resident Open Enrollment.  Every student who participates in the Program needs to re-apply and be accepted each year.  

An application should be completed only if you are interested in sending your child to an elementary school other than your attendance area school.  Your attendance area school is determined by your address.  To locate your school, you can use our interactive Boundary Maps available HERE.  If you have additional questions, please contact the SLCS Transportation Department, (248) 573-8900.   

Hardy Elementary  will again be closed for Resident Open Enrollment for families who do not currently  have a student at Hardy in grades K-4.  Families who do currently have a student at Hardy in grades K-4 under Resident Open Enrollment would be allowed to continue to submit Resident Open Enrollment applications for new incoming students in their family.  This will allow a family who already has current Hardy students in grades K-4 to continue at the school as a family and will allow them to be phased out, rather than be denied placement immediately.  In addition, siblings of students placed in Hardy’s EI or CI classrooms will continue to be able to attend Hardy, along with the children of full-time district staff members. 

Below is a link to the Resident Open Enrollment packet (formerly In-District School of Choice) for the 2024-2025 school year for grades K-5th.  The packet contains detailed information about the program.  You will find the application on the last page of the packet.  Applications will also be available at all elementary schools and at the South Lyon Schools’ Administration Building, 345 South Warren.

The office phone number is (248) 573-8134.  You can also return the application to any of the elementary school principals or office secretaries.  Applications are accepted on a first come-first served basis after the deadline and families may be placed on a wait list.  All applications received before the deadline are given equal attention.
