AGE OF MAJORITY (Board Policy 5780)
The Board of Education recognizes that students, upon the attainment of the age of majority (18), are afforded all the rights and privileges of adulthood. However, under Michigan law, school districts may establish reasonable regulations regarding age-of- majority students. A student interested in applying for the Age of Majority status may obtain a form from the MHS Front Office. Upon the return of the completed form, the student’s attendance secretary will notify his or her guardian. At Montague High School, all students are expected to adhere to the attendance and discipline policies regardless of age. Students are expected to be in all assigned classes or activities unless excused in the appropriate manner.
