Round 1 Jeffco Schools choice enrollment closes Jan 15

The deadline for Jeffco Schools first-round choice enrollment using Enroll Jeffco is 11:59 pm on Friday, Jan. 15.

Enroll Jeffco is Jeffco’s districtwide PK-12 school search tool and online enrollment system, which launched last year. All families will use the system to enroll students for the 2021-22 school year.

Families must use Enroll Jeffco to register all students, whether students will remain at their current school, attend their neighborhood school, or choice-enroll in another Jeffco school. The Round 1 enrollment period began Dec. 8.

School Finder tool

Enroll Jeffco’s School Finder serves as a one-stop source of information about Jeffco’s more than 155 schools.

Students and families can use the School Finder search feature to locate schools. Families can search for schools near their home address or can search for a specific school by name.

Searches can also be filtered by selecting special interests or needs, such as dual language programs, autism spectrum disorder program, Montessori, International Baccalaureate, STEM, and much more.

Families interested in simply finding the schools closest to their home can choose the first option, “we’re not seeking any specific academic programming, just a good school,” and then on the next page, “we’re not seeking any specific student-selected programs or activities, just a good school,” and school options will be listed in order of their distance from the address. In addition, school options can be sorted by best match, distance, and name.

The designation “Your Neighborhood School” indicates the school a student is assigned to as their neighborhood school. Other school options are listed as Neighborhood School, Charter School, Special Education Charter School, or Option School.

The “Compare Schools” tool enables families to select schools and view a side-by-side comparison showing school type, hours, enrollment, and programming offerings.

Enroll Jeffco online enrollment

Enroll Jeffco serves as the district’s enrollment portal. Those who plan to choice enroll have until Jan. 15 to submit applications for the first round.

If there are more choice-enrollment applications than available spaces, a lottery will be used to fill the available spots. All others will be waitlisted. Choice offers will go out in late January.

Round 2 opens Jan. 19 and remains open until the start of the 2021-22 school year.
