The state's schools of choice program offers parents the option to send their children to neighboring districts. But there are some changes this year in the way schools are approaching this program.
School officials say there is an unspoken agreement between superintendents in Mid-Michigan when it comes to Schools of Choice. They say they are not attracting students to their schools at the expense of others.
Schools say they are toning down their advertising, and parents won't see ads on tv, hear spots on the radio, or see marketing signs outside of their city limits.
Mid-Michigan schools are doing minimal advertising as a group with the Ingham Intermediate School District.
One other change is schools are focusing more on maintaining their current enrollment, as opposed to attracting as many students as possible.
