The Kalamazoo Promise is a scholarship for every resident Kalamazoo Public School graduate that provides up to 100% of tuition for post-secondary education. Be enrolled as a full-time student, normally 12 credit hours per semester. Exceptions to this requirement are made for all students at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, all students enrolled during the summer semesters, and, on a case-by-case basis, for all other students. This scholarship program provides up to 145 tuition credits (in-state) and mandatory fees for post-secondary education (based on the previous scale).
Mandatory fees are defined using the same definition as the Michigan Education Trust and are determined by each educational institution. Students must work full time and take at least 12 credit hours per semester, except as indicated in Eligibility. Located on the northwest corner of Lake and Russell Streets in the Edison neighborhood, the first Lake Street school was erected in 1880 and demolished in 1958.The School Board prevailed, setting a precedent by allowing publicly funded secondary education across the country. The Kalamazoo Board of Education signed a lease agreement for a building on the south side of West Main Street, between Arlington and Prairie, for the West Main Street school.
The tuition benefit will be based on the duration of continuing attendance and residence in the Kalamazoo public school system. Elementary and middle school students will not be able to purchase a ticket unless accompanied by an adult. Middle and elementary school students attending KC soccer games must attend with a parent or guardian. By 1904, the growth of the city of Kalamazoo meant that the Board of Education would build new schools and renovate older structures, including the growing neighborhood south of the city, now known as the Edison neighborhood.
The overcrowding at Roosevelt Elementary School, on the east side of Kalamazoo, led the School Board in the 1920s to search for a location for a new school. Before the Roosevelt School was built in 1909, around 1883-84 an earlier school was built on East Main Street and Gilbert. Central Kalamazoo students are entitled to the Kalamazoo Promise, which offers reduced or free college tuition to students attending Michigan public universities. Stuart sued the Kalamazoo School Board in 1874 alleging that the school board's use of taxpayer money to fund secondary education was unconstitutional (until then, taxpayer money was only used for elementary schools).
After the introduction of the Kalamazoo Promise scholarship program, the school, together with the Kalamazoo public school system, became the center of national attention, highlighted by the visit of Katie Couric. This scholarship can only be used at one school per semester, all sessions starting from May to August are considered to be one-semester. Every day, thousands of people pass by the Community Education Center, also known as “Old Central”, located on South Westnedge Avenue and Vine Street, not realizing that there has been a school on that site since 1858. .
