Round 2 of the DPS SchoolChoice process is now closed. It begins every year after families are notified of their Round 1 school placement in mid-April.
Here’s how it works:
Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment of Choice 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.
There is no online process; Round 2 forms will be available at all schools and below. Submit your completed Round 2 form directly to your preferred school or schools that have availability for 2018-19. Read below for more information:
Who should submit a Round 2 SchoolChoice form?
- Families who missed Round 1 and would like to change their student’s school.
- Families who have changed their mind since submitting a Round 1 form. 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 wait-listed at a school in Round 1, please DO NOT submit a Round 2 form to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s list.
What do I need to do to participate in Round 2?
- Current DPS students must submit a paper Round 2 form directly to each requested school.
Where do I submit my form?
- Round 2 forms should be submitted in person to the requested school.
- A separate SchoolChoice form must be submitted to each school requested. There is no limit to the number of schools to which a Round 2 form is submitted.
- There is no online form for Round 2. Forms received by mail, fax or email will not be processed.
When can I submit my form?
- Round 2 begins mid-April, 2018. Round 2 forms may be submitted to schools 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 forms are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no lottery involved and no priorities are given. If the school has available space for the 2018-19 school year at the time you submit your form, 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.
- Round 2 notification is immediate. The school to which you submit your form can inform you if there is space available or if your student will be placed on a waitlist. Letters are not sent from our office.
- If you are accepted to a school in Round 2, your Round 1 school assignment is relinquished. Wait-list positions are not affected.

- If you would like to attend a school other than your neighborhood school, you may request a New Student Enrollment form (for grades 1-12 only) from the neighborhood school that serves your address, or from a Choice and Enrollment office.
