Round 2 of SchoolChoice is Open

Round 2 of SchoolChoice for the 2021-22 school year opens April 6th. Round 2 begins every year after families are notified of their Round 1 school placement, and ends in late August. Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment of SchoolChoice for families who:

  • Did not take part in Round 1 and would like to change their student’s school.
  • Have changed their minds since submitting a Round 1 application. If you are happy with your school placement following Round 1, you do not need to take part in Round 2.
    Please note: If your student was waitlisted at a school in Round 1, do not submit a Round 2 application to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s waitlist.

Round 2 applications are available by accessing your SchoolChoice account.

Call the Choice hotline at 720-423-3493 or email schoolchoice@dpsk12.org for more information.

Enrollment for the 2020-21 School Year

If you are new to Denver, or your Denver address has changed, please complete a Mid-Year Entry application to your preferred schools by creating an account and logging in here. We encourage you to first create a Parent Portal account, then logging in using your Portal username and password.

Contact Enrollment Services at 720-423-3493 with any questions or for assistance submitting your application. For more information on the DPS Choice process please review the Enrollment Guide.


Administrative Transfers

If you want to change schools but have not moved, please contact the school where your student is currently enrolled to request the Administrative Transfer form. Transfer approval is based on space availability, demonstration of genuine need and student history. Administrative Transfers are not a substitute for the SchoolChoice process and should be considered in serious situations only.
