Act 150 of 2000

Act 150 is designed to foster choice for public high school students in grades 9-12. Each school must join with at least one other school to form a choice region. Schools are allowed to limit the number of students who may transfer out in a given year (five percent or 10 students, whichever is smaller), but they may set higher limits. Schools are required to determine their capacity to receive students, but there are no specific numerical or percentage figures. If more students want to transfer out of, or into, a school than there are places available, nondiscriminatory lotteries are to be used. The law provides no funding for transportation, and, unless regions agree otherwise, no tuition changes hands.
