Schools of Choice


Bentley Community Schools will again participate in the 105 State School of Choice program, accepting unlimited applications for kindergarten – 5th grade and 7th-12th grade.

Applications are available online from May 4th through August 18, 2022. (See link below.) You can also pick up an application in the Administration Office. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, August 18th, at 4:00 p.m.


Limited applications will be accepted for 6th grade only from July 13 – August 11, 2022.

Applications are not accepted on a first come, first serve basis. A lottery process will be used if
we receive more applications than we can accept for 6th grade.

NOTE: Parents must provide the previous two years of behavior from the previous attended school(s) for grades 1st – 12th. This is not required for incoming kindergarten students. The behavior must be signed by a district representative. If your student did not have any behavior incidents for the past two years, a statement on district letterhead or a blank behavior report from your district's student information system must be provided as proof.

Applications will be considered incomplete if behavior is not submitted for all schools attended in the two-year period.
Any new incoming student must apply (including siblings). If you have a student currently attending under the 105 School of Choice Program and would like a sibling to attend Bentley Community Schools, you must apply for the sibling. Incoming siblings are not automatically accepted for enrollment. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
If accepted for enrollment under section 105 School of Choice program, students do not need a release from their resident district and can remain in the district through graduation with continuous enrollment pending any major behavior issues.

Questions should be directed to: Dianna Slusarzyk in the Administration Building at 810- 591-9120.

We hope that Bentley is your school of choice!
