Colorado is one of the few states nationwide to offer the "open-enrollment" form of public-school choice. Open enrollment allows students to attend any school they choose to, regardless of where they live, provided the school has space.
To help families find a school that best meets the needs of their students, DPS created SchoolMatch, which allows families to search for schools that offer the programs and features that are important to them. For example, users may search for a neighborhood school that serves sixth-grade, has achieved "Meets Expectations" on the School Performance Framework and offers after-school programming. Enrollment for school year 2013-2014 begins in early December, and the first round of SchoolChoice ends on January 31, 2013.
Families who would like to enroll their students at schools outside their neighborhood boundary will take part in SchoolChoice and can use the SchoolMatch online tool to help them identify the best schools for their students.
