Round 2 of the DPS SchoolChoice process opens May 1. Round 2 begins every year after families are notified of their Round 1 school placement in April.
Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment of SchoolChoice for families who missed Round 1; took part in Round 1 but want to re-explore their options; or are new to DPS for next school year. Round 2 applications will be available following Round 1 notifications by accessing your SchoolChoice account here. Read below for more information.
Who should submit a Round 2 SchoolChoice application?
- Families who did not take part in Round 1 and would like to change their student’s school.
- Families who have changed their mind 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, please DO NOT submit a Round 2 application to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s waitlist.
How do I submit my application?
- Sign in to your SchoolChoice account here. If you don’t have an account, you can create one using your email address or a current Parent Portal log-in.
When can I submit my application?
- Round 2 begins May 1, 2018. Round 2 applications may be submitted through Aug. 31, 2018.
How does Round 2 of the SchoolChoice process work, and how will I be notified of my student’s status?
- Round 2 SchoolChoice applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no lottery involved but priorities are given. Click here for more information about priorities. If the school has available space for the 2018-19 school year at the time you submit your application, your student will be approved and enrolled for next year. If a waitlist exists, your student will be added to the list in date and time order within your given priority. Please note: This means that waitlist positions may change up or down.
- If you are accepted to a school in Round 2, your Round 1 school assignment is relinquished. Waitlist positions for more highly preferred choices are not affected.
