There are three types of enrollment that may apply to you:
If you reside in the Marion School District, you may enroll into the MHSAP at any time of the year, by contacting our office, (319) 373-9209. Please fill out the 2023-24 MHSAP Enrollment Form (download to open form you can type in). Printed copies can be obtained from our office.
Program families enroll online through a district database program called PowerSchool. After contacting us you will be sent information on how to access this database from your computer. Currently enrolled families can review and update information on their student(s) in PowerSchool.
If you live outside the Marion District, your district may currently host a home school assistance program. If your district does not host a program, or you prefer the services that MHSAP has to offer and live within 45 miles, you may open enroll into the Marion District.
As of June 21, 2022, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a law removing the March 1 deadline to declare an intention to switch school districts. This means families no longer need to give a reason to send their students to a new district anytime throughout the year as long as the new district accepts them. Simply send the application to your current district and to MHSAP. We will also need a 'proof of residency' to be submitted with the form (includes purchase contract with possession date or closing date, most recent property tax statement, rental lease, mortgage statement, or utility billing statement.) The information must clearly state the name of the parent or legal guardian, address of residency, and business listed on the form. Confidential information (including account numbers or balances) can be blacked out or cut from the form as long as the previous items listed are clearly displayed.
You may obtain an open enrollment form online or by contacting us. Once completed, email to Tami Pollock, firstname.lastname@example.org, drop them off at MHSAP or mail to MHSAP, 1400 10th Ave., Marion, IA 52302.
Once the open enrollment request has been submitted and approved by the Marion District, we will contact you to set up an orientation interview to answer any questions you have and familiarize you with our program services. An online account will also be set up for you in PowerSchool.
Dual enrollment is a term used to describe a student who is primarily home educated, but who desires participation in selected classes and activities through the public school’s regular education program. If you desire dual enrollment, please indicate that on your open enrollment application and/or the MHSAP Enrollment process. Dual Enrollment is further categorized into Academic and Extracurricular.
