Get Enrolled in District 49

Central Enrollment Office Assistance
Website Portal District 49 parents and guardians begin a student's enrollment using a website portal. To understand the entire enrollment process, carefully read through the information on this page. If you have questions, or otherwise need personal assistance, call a registrar at 719.494.8911.

The enrollment office is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We are now accepting enrollment applications for the 2017-2018 school year (school year begins August 2017). When completing an application, choose 2017-2018 if enrolling for the school year beginning in August 2017. If enrolling for the remainder of the current school year, choose 2016-2017. Do not complete an application if your child is currently enrolled in preschool at one of our coordinated (neighborhood) schools, Imagine Classical Academy Indigo Ranch or Pikes Peak School of Expeditionary Learning.
 
Our enrollment team will assist in getting your child registered in District 49. We're located at 3850 Pony Tracks Drive in Colorado Springs. Our office phone number is 719.494.8911. You may call with any questions, or use our live chat feature.

To expedite the enrollment process, ensure you have all required documents listed on this page. An enrollment cannot be started without these documents. It is each parent or guardian's responsibility to upload these documents. If you do not have the birth certificate or immunization records, please contact the previous school or pediatrician and request to have them sent directly to you. The enrollment office does not request school records or accept faxes from previous schools.
 
Once enrolled in District 49, school level registrars request records, such as transcripts, grades and attendance. For new students enrolling in high school, parents or guardians should request transcripts from the previous school and take them to the new school as soon as an application has been processed. This helps high school counselors quickly review credits and compile a schedule, which includes an official start date.

If you are enrolling a new student in District 49, or transferring a student from Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, Rocky Mountain Classical Academy or Power Technical Early College to another District 49 school, complete each enrollment step outlined below. Existing District 49 students, including those in the district's other charter schools, are not required to re-enroll for the following school year.
 
If your child is a current District 49 student transferring from one neighborhood District 49 school to another, contact both the former and new schools about the new enrollment. As a transfer, a new application is not required.
 
 

I'm Ready to Enroll. What's Next?

Before beginning, carefully read the enrollment document requirements. Applications without the required documentation are returned to applicants. With all documents scanned and ready for uploading, start online enrollment application. If you do not have a scanner, stop by the enrollment office Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., for assistance.

Enrollment applications must be completed either at home or in the enrollment office. If you expect issues completing an application at home, bring all documents to the enrollment office for help completing the application and uploading the documents.
 
If your student previously attended District 49 schools, left and is now re-enrolling, a new enrollment application, and all required documents, are required.
 
Our 30-day Requirement: Unsubmitted applications are held for 30 days, and then deleted. This also applies to applications submitted and returned for incomplete or unacceptable documents; if not corrected, resubmitted and processed prior to the 30-day deadline. Carefully review application requirements to ensure application includes all required documents. The date an email is sent with an application link starts the 30-day window.
 
Case-sensitive Verification: After you start an online enrollment application, the form to begin the process will first require letters and numbers for a case-sensitive CAPTCHA human verification process. After verification, the system sends an email from "D49 Dialer" with a link to begin the actual application.
