The K12.MI.US domain is reserved for K-12 schools, public and private, in the state of Michigan.
The following criteria will be used to determine whether or not an institution will be granted a domain name under K12.MI.US:
Each institution, public or private, that meets the criteria given above, will be granted one domain name under K12.MI.US.
Any entity that does not meet the above criteria will not be granted a
domain name under K12.MI.US.
where <school> is a label chosen by the school and <district> is either a label chosen by the public school district or is a predefined label . The choice for <district> will depend on which of the following three categories the school falls into.
A public school is typically a constituent of a public school district. The <district> label of such a school's domain name will be the label chosen by the district to uniquely identify the district. All schools in the same district will use the same <district> label.
The <district>.K12.MI.US domain name must be registered with domreg.merit.edu (see How to Register A Domain Name). This domain name must be registered before any school in the district can register a domain name.
The school's domain name, <school>.<district>.K12.MI.US, must be registered with the technical contact for the <district>.K12.MI.US domain. Search the domreg.merit.edu Registry to find a school district's domain name and technical contact. If a school wishes to register a domain name, but its district does not yet have a registered domain name, then the school needs to take appropriate steps to have a domain name registered for the district first.
A growing number of public schools are not part of a public school district. These schools may be called school academies or charter schools or something else, but are still publicly funded. Because these schools don't have a district, they will be assigned to a pseudo district called "Special Publicly Funded Schools", and SPFS will be used for the <district> label. The domain name of such schools will therefore be of the form <school>.SPFS.K12.MI.US . Domain names of this form must be registered with domreg.merit.edu (see How to Register A Domain Name).
All private schools will be assigned to a pseudo district called "Private Schools", and PVT will be used for the <district> label. The domain name of a private school will therefore be of the form <school>.PVT.K12.MI.US . Domain names of this form must be registered with domreg.merit.edu (see How to Register A Domain Name).
