New Student Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in Holt Public Schools!

NOW ENROLLING for the 2021-2022 school year

Holt/Dimondale Resident student enrollments are now being accepted for Kindergarten – 12th grade.  Initial emphasis will be placed on completing kindergarten submissions due to the number of enrollments and balanced calendar students who start school August 3rd.  All other enrollments will be processed as we work through each submission and will be finalized prior to the beginning of school. 


Please follow the steps below to enroll a new student at Holt Public Schools.  If you are unsure whether your address falls in our district, you may verify by visiting the GreatSchools website.  If you are unable to use our digital process for enrollment, please contact the Curriculum Office at 517.699.1103 or 517.694.5730.

There is no need to call the Curriculum Office to check on the status of your enrollment.  If all requirements for enrollment have been met/supplied the enrollment will be finalized within 2-4 days following submission.  If there are problems with an enrollment the submitting parent/guardian will be contacted directly.  

  • If you are a Resident and withdrew your student from Holt Public Schools due to the pandemic and now want to return, you must follow the enrollment process fully to re-enroll.
  • If you are a School of Choice (SoC) family who withdrew your student due to the pandemic and now want to return, you will need to re-apply by completing an application for Schools of Choice placement between June 1 – June 15, 2021.  School of Choice applications will be available at the Education Center at 5780 W. Holt Road, Door #35.  Out of District/School of Choice enrollments will be removed from the PowerSchool system if submitted prior to approval.
