    Applications for First Round Choice Enrollment are accepted in accordance with Jeffco's Choice Enrollment policy for the following school year.  
    Round One applications are prioritized through a lottery process; however, all applications must be submitted by the last day of the Jefferson County Schools open enrollment period.  Students will be accepted on a space-available basis. 
    Waiting lists, which are prioritized, will be created if applicants exceed space available at the school.  A separate application must be completed and submitted for each child. 

    If a student is not offered a spot during the First Round Choice Enrollment period, the student remains on the prioritized wait list.  

    Second Round Choice Enrollment
    Applications submitted during the Second Round Choice Enrollment period will be added to the waitlist on a first-come, first served basis.  The wait lists are active each year through October 1.  New students will not be enrolled after October 1.
