Schools of Choice Programs in LPS 

Livonia Public Schools is pleased to offer a variety of Schools of Choice options for families who reside within the school district boundaries and those who live outside of the LPS boundaries. Below, you'll find a summary of the Choice options that are available. 


Limited Schools of Choice
 (now closed for next school year) 
For the past several years, the Livonia Public Schools Board of Education has approved Limited Schools of Choice programs, in which Section 105/105c Schools of Choice applications are accepted for a limited number of seats at specified grade levels. Limited Schools of Choice is open to residents of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe and Washtenaw counties. Members of the community, during budget forums, included Limited Schools of Choice in the list of items the district should consider in order to increase revenue and enrollment in order to preserve the many programs LPS offers to students. 

During the January 22 meeting, the Board of Education approved the Limited Schools of Choice program for the 2018-19 school year. The application window of February 28, 2018 through 4:00 p.m. on March 29, 2018 IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR.
