SCHOOLCHOICE – Pre-Enrollment
If you have a student that will be new to DPS next school year, in order to participate in Denver Public Schools Choice process, families may pre-enroll their student now!  After you complete the pre-enrollment process we will send you a student ID number so that you can then create a Parent Portal account.  Using Parent Portal is the best way to complete the Choice Process starting January 15, 2019.

Go HERE to complete your Pre-Enrollment Paperwork.  You will need to fill out the paperwork and return it to the school office with proof of birth and proof of address, such as a lease or a utility bill.

*Current Students DO NOT need to do this.
