School of Choice Documents

  • How are School of Choice applications approved?

    Posted by:

    The selection process is based on a priority system. Residents of District 49 are considered first. Non-residents are considered second. Administrators at the school make every effort to accommodate requests; however, choice enrollment acceptance is limited by space, staff availability and the schools' choice procedures. Other determining factors involve the requested grade level or availability of special programs and facilities to meet a student’s educational needs.

  • If my School of Choice application is accepted, how long is it valid?

    Posted by:

    School of Choice approved applications are good for the duration of an academic level. For example, a student who is accepted into an elementary school does not have to complete a new choice application until they're ready to enter middle school. District 49 residents who move out of the district may finish the current school year, but must submit a new choice application for the following school year.

  • Will my high school student’s eligibility be impacted by using choice enrollment?

    Posted by:

    Restricted athletic eligibility is a factor that families should consider before transferring to another school. Parent/guardians are encouraged to completely read and understand the Colorado High School Activities Association rules. According to the CHSAA Transfer Rule, "A student who transfers to a different high school without a bona fide family move over the summer will have restricted eligibility for the first 50 percent of the season in the upcoming school year in those sports (sponsored by CHSAA) in which they participated during the calendar year preceding the transfer.” If you have other questions, please contact your school's athletic director.
