Enrollment Options for the 2023-2024 School Year

This section is for students that will be attending between September 2023 and June 2024.

Waverly Community Schools Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)

Waverly is proud to offer six tuition free GSRP PreK classrooms for 4 year olds during the 2023-2024 school year.

Each classroom will utilize certified teachers and an assistant in each classroom, an overall teacher/student ratio of 1 to 8 for our program. Play is the primary vehicle for a child's development in the social/emotional, intellectual, language and literary, creative, physical and health areas of development. Each day children will have opportunities to play and learn. Our GSRP will focus on small and large motor development, music and movement, language and literacy (including pre-reading skills), social/emotional learning, and whole group and small group instruction. Connect4Learning has research-based and classroom-tested foundations in literacy, science, social-emotional, and mathematics learning. Each subject is addressed meaningfully and comprehensively with each child.

For more information on the GSRP program, click this PDF file.

  • Have a birth date between 09/02/2018 and 09/01/2019. If seats remain, birth dates between 09/02/2019 and 12/01/2019 will be considered after 09/01/2023.

Frequently Asked Questions - Schools of Choice

 

Question: I don't live in the Waverly Community Schools School District, how can I enroll my student into the WCS district?

Answer: State law governs the Schools of Choice process. School districts have the option of participating in Schools of Choice on an annual basis. Districts may advertise available slots and accept applications only at specific times. The Waverly Board of Education makes decisions about the districts participation in Schools of Choice in the spring for the next school year. At that time, the availability of seats at specific grade levels will be identified and published. 


Question: When is the SOC application period?

Answer: The application period can be between 15-30 calendar days. The SOC application period will be announced each year after the Board of Education makes the decision regarding the district's participation.


Question: Where may I obtain an application?

Answer: There will be a online application available during the SOC application period. 


Question: I have multiple students, do I need to complete a SOC application for each of them?

Answer: Yes, each student would need to have a completed SOC application. 


Question: If my student is accepted, will I need to reapply each year?

Answer: Once a student is accepted under Schools of Choice provisions, their enrollment is through graduation as long as enrollment is continuous. If a student withdraws from Waverly Schools, they will forfeit their slot and must reapply during the next application period. 


Question: Are siblings guaranteed enrollment in future years?

Answer: Siblings are not guaranteed enrollment in future years, however, they are given preference for available advertised slots over any other new applicants providing the district participates in the Schools of Choice process in the year of application. 


Question: How are applications chosen to enroll in Waverly Community Schools?

Answer: The application asks very basic information (name, grade, address, district of residence, sibling information, whether there have been suspensions or expulsions, etc).  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. Waverly Community 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.


Question: Who provides transportation for my student?

Answer: Transportation to and from our district will be the responsibility of the parent.  Children must arrive in time to begin instructional activities at the start of the school day and must be picked up or have arranged childcare once the school day has ended.


Question: How do I know if I live within the Schools of Choice boundaries?

Answer: School districts within Ingham County are within the Schools of Choice boundaries for Waverly Community Schools as well as districts located in intermediate school districts that are contiguous to Ingham Intermediate School District (Clinton, Eaton, Jackson, Livingston, Shiawassee and Washtenaw).
