I receive a lot of inquiry’s from relocation clients moving to Parker and Douglas County wanting to know what their choices are for open enrollment. Here is the best and most current info I have seen.
Douglas County School District now offers two open enrollment windows, as a result of the Choice priority outlined in the District’s Strategic Plan. Our goal is to provide parents with the opportunity to find the best educational niche for their students. The first open enrollment period is now open, and will close on January 5, 2012. The second window will be open from April 15 to August 15, 2012.
The District’s open enrollment policy allows Douglas County School District parents to apply for enrollment in DCSD schools other than their neighborhood school. Students who are residents of Colorado, but do not reside within the school district boundaries may also submit applications. Open enrollment applications are approved for the 2012-2013 school year on a space-available basis.
Families who wish to open enroll their student for the 2012-2013 school year must complete an online application, available at Open Enrollment.
The deadline for applications during the current window is January 5. Parents will be notified if students are eligible to attend requested schools in mid-January.
