Gaylord Community Schools accepts applications for enrollment under schools of choice for students residing outside of the Gaylord school district boundaries. 

Students who reside outside of the district will need to submit a Schools of Choice application and proof of residency.  Proof of residency must have parent/guardian name and address listed (Ex. driver's license, a deed, building permit, rental agreement, tax statement, voter registration card, etc.).  Decisions with respect to the enrollment of non-resident students shall be made on a non-discriminatory basis.
