    Act 114 created the alternative application procedure, by which parents can apply for open enrollment outside of the regular application period for specific criteria/reasons.  A parent will need to select from the seven available criteria under which they are submitting the alternative application and must give an explanation as to why they are applying. The seven criteria that the parent can choose from include:

    • The pupil’s resident school district determines that the pupil is a victim of a violent crime.
    • The pupil is or has been homeless in the current or preceding school year.
    • The pupil has been the victim of repeated bullying or harassment that has been reported to the resident school district and continues in spite of action taken.
    • The pupil’s place of residence has changed due to the parent’s military orders.
    • The pupil moved into this state within the last 30 days.
    • The pupil’s place of residence has changed as a result of a court order or custody agreement, or the pupil was placed in a foster home or with a person other than the pupil’s parent, or removed from a foster home or the home of a person other than the pupil’s parent.
    • The pupil’s parent and the nonresident and resident school districts agree that attending the nonresident school district is in the best interests of the pupil.
