DENVER — Summer break may stand between the end of this school year and beginning of the next, but local school districts are already prepped for 2019-2020 enrollment.

Denver Public Schools’ award-winning unified enrollment system, SchoolChoice, is about to kick off its eighth year. Enrollment is now open and runs through Feb. 15 at 4 p.m.

This process gives every family equal access to the school they think is best for their student, regardless of their address or background, according to DPS. Families rank their student’s preferred schools on the application and DPS then matches the student to a school based on those preferences, taking into account available space and school admission priorities.

You can access the mobile-friendly online application here.

Families are encouraged to talk with leaders and staff at the schools they are interested in to learn more.

Jeffco Public Schools is launching a new enrollment system on Jan. 22 for the upcoming school year. All current and new students will need to visit between Jan. 22 and Feb. 8 to indicate if they’ll return to their current school, go to an assigned neighborhood school or apply for other schools in the district.

Online registration has also opened for Aurora Public Schools. Enrollment runs from Jan. 15 until May 1.

Douglas County Public Schools opens its second round of enrollment registration on Jan. 22. It will remain open until Aug. 1.
