The email will tell you what to bring to complete the choice application. Bring acceptable proof of residency. (Recommend a WE Energy bill.) If you filed taxes the previous year, use the DOR method. Then you will not have to bring income documents. If you use DPI, you will have to bring proof of income. See the DPI email for instructions.
TUITION - If you do not qualify for a choice seat, you will have to pay tuition. Make arrangements with the business office to pay tuition by signing a tuition payment plan between the 1st and 20th of the month. (Come to the business office to pick up and sign a tuition payment plan.) Do this in the month in which you enrolled to complete enrollment.
Supply all documents requested to complete enrollment. Bring acceptable documents to the St. Marcus business office. The business office is in the building on Palmer and North. Please come to door #17 off 1st Street. Do this on a school day from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm between the 1st and 20th of the month in which you enroll. (Come several days before the 20th. This allows time to bring acceptable documents. You might bring something that cannot be used.)
St. Marcus sends letters within 60 days of the end of the enrollment period. This letter will tell you the status of the child (received a seat or number on the waiting list).
If you have questions, please ask. If your contact information changes (email, phone, or address), please tell us. If we cannot contact you, you cannot be offered a seat. Contact the enrollment coordinator at 414-267-8381 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
