Choice Enrollment

  • Choice Enrollment (also referred to as "Open Enrollment") is annually held during the months of January and February 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 enroll students in a school other than their assigned neighborhood school.


    Important policy change that began with the 2015-16 school year: Students who reside outside the boundaries of Lewis-Palmer School District are approved on a year-to-year basis in order to remain enrolled in Lewis-Palmer School District (not applicable to Monument Academy since charter school policies differ). Students who were previously choice enrolled from outside the district are "grandfathered" and may finish out the grade levels served by that school. There was no change for students who reside within Lewis-Palmer School District: once approved, choice enrollment is valid for the grade levels served by that school.
