DPSCD Virtual School January Enrollment Process

DPSCD Families and Students, 

The DPSCD Virtual School will begin enrollment for the second semester starting Monday, December 13, 2021. The DPSCD Virtual School will be using an over-the-counter enrollment process to enroll current district students and new students to the district. As a reminder, the second semester will begin on January 31, 2022. Interested students and families need to visit the Virtual School location at 14771 Mansfield St, Detroit, MI 48227 and complete the necessary enrollment form, learn about the Virtual School learning process, receive instructional materials, including your laptop device.

You may enroll at the Virtual School for the second semester on the following dates, days, and times:

  • Monday, December 13th through Thursday, December 16th 10am – 3pm
  • Monday, January 3rd through Friday, January 7th – 10am to 3pm
  • Monday, January 10th through Friday, January 14th 10am to 3pm
  • Saturday, January 15th, 10am to 3pm for enrollment form drop-off only *Note that the Technology Hub is not open on Saturday—device pick up will need to occur during regular Technology Hub hours M-F*

If you or your child has an IEP or a 504 plan, you should not come to the Virtual School in-person to initiate a transfer. Instead, send an email containing your student’s first and last name, current DPSCD school and student ID to virtual.school@detroitk12.org and request enrollment for second semester. The Virtual School team and Exceptional Student Education department will conduct a necessary review to determine if a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) can be provided at the Virtual School. After you send your request via email, expect a reply within 5 business days. If it is determined that FAPE can be provided, the Virtual School team will reach out and coordinate a time when you can come to the school location to complete the enrollment and orientation process.

As a reminder, students who enroll in the Virtual School for second semester will have a seat at their home school reserved for them in Fall 2022. If they do not return to their home school in Fall 2022, their seat will no longer be reserved. In addition, if you are a high school senior and attend the Virtual School for the second semester of this school year, your diploma will be issued from the DPSCD Virtual School and not your home school.

Current Virtual School families who would like to transfer back to their home school for second semester will receive a survey to indicate their request. Please look for more information from the Virtual School administration about this survey.

If you have questions about Virtual School enrollment, please contact the Virtual School at virtual.school@detroitk12.org or call 313-644-0200.
