SchoolChoice Information

Posted January 18, 2022

Round 1 of SchoolChoice opens January 14- Feb. 15, 2022.

The DPS SchoolChoice open enrollment window for the 2022-23 school year is now open through 4 p.m. Feb. 15, 2022. Apply now.

SchoolChoice is for any student who wants or needs to attend a new school for the following school year, particularly “transitioning” students, typically incoming kinder, sixth, and ninth-grade students. All incoming preschool students, as well as incoming students who reside in an enrollment zone, must complete an application.

SchoolChoice is as easy as Find, Apply, Register!

Here’s how it works:

  • FIND the best DPS school options for your student. Use the mobile-friendly School Finder, read the Enrollment Guide (mailed to transition-grade families in early December), and contact schools directly for more information.
  • APPLY between 10 a.m. Jan. 14 and 4 p.m. Feb. 15, 2022 by ranking your preferred schools (up to 12) using the online SchoolChoice application. Create an account or sign in using your Parent Portal username and password. Access the application beginning at 10 a.m. Jan. 14.
  • REGISTER with your school after you get your school placement results in late March 2022.
