SchoolChoice 2019-20

Posted 12/18/2018

It is hard to believe that we are half way through the year and it is time to begin planning for the next school year 19-20. The more exciting part of a new school year is Choice Enrollment time.  It is time to choose a school for your child!

Transitioning-grade students – ECE transitioning to Kindergarten, 5th transitioning to 6th Grade, and 8th Grade transitioning to 9th Grade.

If your student is a Tansitioning-grade student, you MUST submit a SchoolChoice Form if you plan to attend a school of your choice. Any DPS student who wants to attend a school other than their automatically assigned neighborhood school can take part in SchoolChoice. Families submit one SchoolChoice Form per student online, on which they rank their student’s top five school preferences. DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space.

If a form is not completed online, your child will automatically be enrolled into to the neighborhood school.
