The Novi Community School District implemented a centralized enrollment system to improve customer service for new families and students. Parents and guardians will no longer be enrolling their students at individual school buildings. The one-stop enrollment for all Novi Schools – preschool through high school – now takes place through the Community Education Department located at the:
Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC)
