My student was not accepted: What are my next steps?
District Right to Denial: The District may deny a student enrollment in an on-line course if any of the following apply, as determined by the District:
- The on-line course is inconsistent with the remaining graduation requirements or career interests of the student.
- The student has previously gained the credits that would be provided from the completion of the virtual course.
- The student does not possess the prerequisite knowledge and skills to be successful or has demonstrated failure in previous virtual coursework in the same subject within the two most recent academic years.
- The online course is of insufficient quality or rigor. If the District denies a student enrollment for this reason, the District shall make a reasonable effort to assist the student to find an alternative course in the same or a similar subject that is of acceptable rigor and quality.
- The virtual enrollment request did not occur within the same timelines established for enrollment (academic term, semester, or summer preceding the enrollment) and schedule changes for regular courses. Michigan Department of Education Pupil Accounting Manual Virtual Learning Options 5-O-D-5. This does not apply to a request made by a student who is newly enrolled in the district.
- The course has reached capacity and the district has restricted enrollment to resident applicants.
If a student is denied enrollment in an online course by the District, the student or parent/guardian may appeal the denial by submitting a letter to the Superintendent or designee. The appeal must include the reason provided by the District for not enrolling the student and the reason why the student is claiming that the enrollment should be approved.
If a student is denied enrollment by the District, the parent/ guardian may appeal on the students' behalf by submitting a letter to the Superintendent or designee. The appeal must include the reason provided by the District for not enrolling the student and the reason why the student is claiming that the enrollment should be approved. The Superintendent or designee shall respond to the appeal within five (5) days after it is received.

Step 3: Review of All Documents
Once steps 1 & 2 are completed, our staff will review all the documentation to make sure it has been received. Once that is complete, we will reach out if there are any additional documents that we will need to finalize enrollment.
