The State Aid Act allows districts to receive funding for nonresident students it serves. Some districts, such as Berrien Springs and Suttons Bay, have begun innovative programs to serve nonresident students in this way.[40]

However, Michigan law also requires that if the educating district wishes to operate a facility outside of its own boundaries to serve such nonresident students, it must gain the approval of the district in which it wishes to operate such a facility.[41] By removing this requirement for educating districts that start a program near a low-ranked school, the state would be removing barriers to educational options for students who might be receiving inadequate educational opportunities.
