Prospective Families & Enrollment

School Choice

More than 27,000 DPS families participated in the first round SchoolChoice for the 2018-19 school year. First round is closed; families will receive their placement notifications in early April. You can review the admission priorities here. Also, for more detailed information about the SchoolChoice matching process, click here.

Round 2 of SchoolChoice will open on May 1. Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment during which families can apply directly to their preferred schools that have availability for next year. Check here for more information on Round 2.

DPS encourages parents/guardians of currently enrolled DPS students to create a Parent Portal account in order to participate in the online SchoolChoice system.
