Schools of Choice participation has grown steadily, with enrollment growing by 144 percent over the past 10 years. Though enrollment through Schools of Choice was previously more prevalent in rural areas of the state, it is now widespread throughout Michigan. A total of 461 school districts reported receiving at least one student through Schools of Choice during the 2011-12 school year. High school and kindergarten students use Schools of Choice more than students in any other grade.
