Enrollment FAQs

I don't live within the Richmond Community School District? Can my child still come to school there?

The State of Michigan allows public schools to participate in a program called "School of Choice". Each year, we apply for permission to admit enrollment to students who live outside our district boundaries. These School of Choice windows usually run before both first and second semester. Out of district students are welcome to apply during either our first semester or second semester window. If our district isn't currently open for School of Choice, please contact Sarah Ogden for information on the next available window.

How do I apply for School of Choice?

Answer: You can apply for School of Choice during our first semester or second semester window. You apply by completing the School of Choice application available on this page. If the application is not currently available online, our window is closed. Please contact Sarah Ogden for the dates of the next available School of Choice window.

Applications must be completed in full, signed by the student's former school, and discipline logs for the prior two years should be included with the completed application. Acceptance is contingent upon review of a student's discipline history. Students with prior discipline infractions are subject to denial. For further information on School of Choice, contact Sarah Ogden.

I didn't receive an approval email after I submitted my pre-enrollment. Now what?

Answer: Please allow for two school days to pass. If you still haven't received an approval email, please check your spam folder. Emails will come directly from PowerSchool. If the email is not in your spam folder, please email Sarah Ogden at sogden@richmond.k12.mi.us. She can forward you the information you need to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal Account to access the enrollment documents.

How do I schedule an appointment to finalize my enrollment?

Answer: When you submit the final enrollment form in your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account, a box will populate that says "Ok". In that box, there is also a link to our Enrollment Finalization Calendar. To access that link, re-submit the final item and click on the writing in that confirmation box that says "Click HERE to schedule an enrollment appointment". If for some reason you are still unable to schedule from that link, email Sarah Ogden at sogden@richmond.k12.mi.us.

What items should I bring to my enrollment appointment?

Answer: Each enrollment is different. However, the main items we will be looking for are:

  • Two proofs of residency (Ex: Mortgage, Property Tax Bill, lease agreement, utility bills, voter registration, etc.)

  • Parent ID

  • Student's birth certificate

  • Student's immunization record

  • Custody agreement, if applicable

  • Medical concern documentation, if applicable

  • Hearing and vision test results (kindergarten only)

  • Proof of income (GSRP applicants only)

I live with someone and don't have any bills in my name. What do I do?

Answer: When you schedule your enrollment appointment, be sure to select a date and time that works for both you and the person you are living. They will need to come with you to sign a Residency Affidavit confirming that you live with them. They'll need to provide their ID and two proofs of residency. If they are unable to come in for your appointment, you can pick up a copy of the form to complete at home. Please note that the Residency Affidavit must be signed in the presence of a notary. We have a notary on staff here at the administration building.

Where do I go for my enrollment appointment?

Answer: Enrollment appointments are held at the administration building. We are located at 35276 Division, Richmond, MI 48062 on the backside of Richmond Middle School. Drive all the way behind the middle school. Our entrance is door #13.

I don't have access to a computer. Can I come fill out paper forms instead?

Answer: All of our enrollment forms are now only online. If you do not have access to a computer or a smart phone, we have a computer you can use at our administration building. To schedule a time to use our computer, please contact Sarah Ogden.
