DPS SchoolChoice open from Jan. 15 to Feb. 15

The Denver Public Schools’ School Choice window is open from Jan. 15 to Feb. 15, 2019. Any student who wants or needs to attend a new school for the 2019-20 school year may take part in SchoolChoice. Every year, families may submit one application per student, on which they rank their students’ top school preferences for the following school year. DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space.
