Choice Enrollment

  • Choice Enrollment (also referred to as "Open Enrollment") is held annually beginning in January for the upcoming school year for students entering kindergarten through 12th grade. This is the process by which in-district and non-resident families may be granted authorization to enroll students in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school. There are two separate application periods:

    • Round One - the first six weeks of the choice enrollment window. This year's window: Jan 3 to Feb 11, 2022.
    • Round Two - beginning after the end of Round One.

    Students are approved on a year-to-year basis in order to remain enrolled in Lewis-Palmer School District. As long as there is room in the next grade level of the current building, the students automatically advance each year (not applicable to Monument Academy since charter school policies differ).
