ATTENTION FORMER INKSTER STUDENTS: Families between Michigan, Van Born, Middlebelt and Inkster have been designated for the Taylor School District this fall

The State of Michigan recently dissolved the Inkster Public Schools, forcing the students in that district to be divided among the four contiguous public school districts of Taylor, Romulus, Wayne-Westland and Westwood. That means that former Inkster students will now be rerouted to those districts in the coming school year.

Families living between Michigan Avenue (north), Van Born (south), Middlebelt (west) and Inkster (east) have been designated for the Taylor School District.

To learn more about the situation, click here to reach a "Frequently Asked Questions" posted by the Taylor School District. In addition, to read a "Welcome Letter" by Taylor Supt. Diane Allen, click here.

Inkster parents should note that to attend Taylor schools on Sept. 3, their children must be registered. What is needed to register your child in the Taylor School District is available by clicking here.

Taylor will have staff on hand at Meek-Baylor Media Center from noon until 6 p.m. on Aug. 12 to register new students. After that, they will have to register at the Pupil Accounting Department, 9551 Westlake, Taylor, MI, 48180, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 2:45 p.m.
