    Registration FAQs


    I’m an AAPS staff person who gets a BOE fee waiver as part of my contract. How do I use my annual BOE credit for a free class? 

    We've made registering for your free class easy and convenient! First, choose which class or activity you’d like to participate in. Next, download the AAPS Staff Pass, which is a quick fillable Word document. You can scan and email the completed form to registration@aaps.k12.mi.us, send a paper copy via school mail to Rec & Ed @ Pioneer, or drop it off at our office. Please note that the BOE fee waiver can only be used by the employee only, not by family members.
