Enrollment and Registration

The DPS SchoolChoice season for the 2020-21 school year is open!

You can access the new online application on the SchoolChoice website using cellphone, tablet or computer.

SchoolChoice allows you to apply to any school in DPS; simply rank up to five school preferences for next year and submit the application by Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. There’s no advantage to applying early – just submit your application by the deadline!

Once you’ve submitted the application and the SchoolChoice window closes, we will spend a few weeks running a computer tool at an offsite location that matches your student to a school based on your school preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space. We will then send out placement notifications by early April. Learn more about SchoolChoice admission priorities.

There also are resources for families who are still researching their school options, including the annual Great Schools Enrollment Guides, and the new, online, mobile-friendly School Finder. Both are available at SchoolChoice. The best way for families to find their best-fit school is to visit schools in person and talk to leaders and staff.

Since we’re now asking all families to apply online, we know you might have questions during the SchoolChoice process – and we’re happy to help! Contact an enrollment representative by calling the SchoolChoice hotline at 720-423-3493 or email schoolchoice@dpsk12.org. You can also visit the front office at your child’s school or go to SchoolChoice.
