Enrollment for the 2020-21 school year

If you are new to DPS and would like to locate your neighborhood school or enrollment zone, at which your student has a guaranteed seat, type in your address using School Finder.

You may apply to a school for 2020-21 during SchoolChoice Round 2, which is open now through late August, 2020. Any student, whether new to DPS or currently enrolled, can apply via Round 2. Call the Enrollment hotline at 720-423-3493 or email schoolchoice@dpsk12.org for assistance.

If you are already enrolled in a school, save time during fall registration by updating your student’s information online this summer. Annual Family Update opens July 20. You will need a Parent Portal account to participate. Read more about Annual Family Update, including information on how to create or retrieve your Parent Portal login information now.

How SchoolChoice Works: Find, Apply, Register

Research the best school options for your student

Sign into your SchoolChoice account, or create an account. We recommend using your DPS Parent Portal username and password.* Once signed in, you can:

  • Apply to a school for 2020-21 during SchoolChoice Round 2, which is open now through late August, 2020.
  • Apply for Mid-Year Entry to a school other than your neighborhood school (if you are new to Denver or your address has changed).

*If you are new to DPS and do not have a Parent Portal account, you must first pre-enroll at any DPS school. Once you have pre-enrolled, use your student ID to create a Parent Portal account.

You can also access the SchoolChoice application by creating a SchoolChoice account using your email address.
