    INFORMATION SHEET        APPLICATION


    Lakeshore Public Schools accepts Schools of Choice applications for residents of Berrien County ONLY during specific timeframes.  Acceptance will be determined by the spots available in the building and the grade level requested. Some applications may be denied due to overall building capacity and/or student disciplinary issues.

    Parents can apply by completing and returning an application to Lakeshore Public Schools Administrative Office during the posted dates established each year. In order to receive an email notification at the start of each application window, please send an email with your name, address, and email address to Sue Hardy shardy@lpslancer.net.
