School of Choice does not apply to Crossroads as our district is the entire State of Michigan, this allows any student an opportunity to attend providing there is a place in the grade requested. Charter Schools are allowed to set the size limit of classrooms. If the grade level is full, the student goes on a waiting list until an opening occurs. Waiting List students are notified immediately throughout the school year when an opening becomes available. We encourage families to take the opening if they want their student to attend Crossroads, and it is prior to the 4th quarter of the school year.

- Do you need the official birth certificate?
Yes! It is a Michigan requirement that schools see (and may copy for the student’s file) the original state birth certificate. This is to verify that the child is being enrolled by the parent/guardian. If other than parents court documentation will be requested.
- Do you have Special Education Services?
Crossroads maintains a great staff of Special Education Teachers, Title I Teacher and Paraprofessionals, as well as At-Risk Paraprofessionals. All students have access to whatever services may be needed to help them be successful in school. We encourage communication between staff and parents in order to stay informed of concerns and possible need for further testing, and/or services.
- Immunization records:
Immunizations are required for children to be in school. If parents/guardians do not choose to immunize their child(ren), they must go to the local health department and go through the process of requesting a waiver. Updated immunization records/or current health department waiver should be given to the school as soon as completed.
