Current-year enrollment in DPS

As you know, metro-area school districts, including Denver Public Schools, have transitioned to remote learning for all students for the remainder of the school year. We are aware there are families living in Denver who attend a non-DPS school with limited access to comprehensive remote learning options.

We want the Denver community to know we are still accepting enrollments and registering new students who want to attend school in DPS for the current school year. (Read about applying to school for 2020-21.) To locate your DPS neighborhood school, type in your address using School Finder.

Families who wish to enroll in DPS should contact Choice and Enrollment Services at 720-423-3493 or schoolchoice@dpsk12.org to get started.

Walk-in centers closed

Due to COVID-19, our walk-in centers are closed until further notice. You may call our hotline at 720-423-3493.

How SchoolChoice Works: Find, Apply, Register

Research the best school options for your student

Sign into your SchoolChoice account, or create an account. We recommend using your DPS Parent Portal username and password.* Once signed in, you can:

  • Apply to a school for 2020-21 during SchoolChoice Round 2, which is open now through late August, 2020.
  • Apply for Mid-Year Entry to a school other than your neighborhood school (if you are new to Denver or your address has changed).

*If you are new to DPS and do not have a Parent Portal account, you must first pre-enroll at any DPS school. Once you have pre-enrolled, use your student ID to create a Parent Portal account.

You can also access the SchoolChoice application by creating a SchoolChoice account using your email address.
