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. The Round One Choice Window for the 2023-2024 school year will be Jan 3 to Feb 10, 2023.
- 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. Please see our Information Letter for additional details.
Application and Policies
You will find the Round 1 Application posted here starting January 3, 2023.
Applications for Choice Enrollment for the current 2022-2023 school year are now submitted with the Round 2 Application. Students will either be accepted or placed on a wait list, depending on grade level capacity and staffing limitations at the school requested.
To submit the application, it should first be saved to your device. You can then enter and save the data. The completed application should be emailed as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure the form contains your information before sending. You can also scan or take a picture of the completed application and send it to email@example.com. The application may also be faxed, mailed, or dropped off at the District Administration Building.
Please note: Due to the size of the current 9th grade class at Lewis-Palmer High School and related staffing and scheduling constraints, Lewis-Palmer High School 9th grade is now closed to choice enrollment for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year.
