The selection process is based on a priority system. Residents of District 49 are considered first. Non-residents are considered second. Administrators 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.
Parent/Guardian will want to inquire directly with the school as to what their notification procedures are and when to expect a decision.
Parent/Guardian will receive email notification when their enrollment application has been processed. At that time they are free to take their school of choice application directly to the school they wish to choice enroll their child(ren) in.
School of Choice 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.
Falcon D49 elementary schools only offer full day kindergarten.
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.

After the online enrollment registration has been completed and processed, parents/guardians will be notified via email. When the notification has been received, parents/guardians are then free to take their school of choice application directly to the school that they wish to choice enroll their child(ren) into.
