Enrollment

All students entering Lighthouse Education Center must meet the requirements of Michigan Special Education Rules.  An Individualized Education Planning Committee (IEPC) meeting is held to determine eligibility, students’ needs, appropriate program, and placement alternatives.  Committee members include the parents, Lighthouse Education Center administrator, local district representative, MET representative, teacher(s), and ancillary staff/therapist/parent representatives as needed.  If Lighthouse is determined to be the appropriate placement alternative, the parents/guardians then complete a series of building enrollment forms including basic student data, transportation form, application for school lunch, etc.  In addition, the school will need the student's health appraisal, copy of a birth certificate, immunization records, various permissions, verification of residency, and a release of records request.  Office staff is available to assist parents/guardians through this enrollment process.
