School of Choice Program

Wayne-Westland Community Schools offer district residents a Schools of Choice program for the 2019-2020 year for students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The Schools of Choice program provides parents the opportunity to move their child from one school to another within the boundaries of the school district PROVIDED there is room available in the school.

While the School of Choice window is currently closed, we are accepting wait list applicants. Please apply at the school of your choice.

Transportation to and from the school of choice must be provided by the parent or legal guardian. School district residents who would like their child to attend an elementary, upper elementary, middle or high school other than their school of residency must submit a 2019-2020 Schools of Choice application.
