Great Schools Expo Kicks Off SchoolChoice Season

Nov. 10, 2016

Nearly two thousand Denver Public Schools (DPS) students, families, school leaders and educators attended the 2016 Great Schools Expo on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The event, which kicked off the research portion of the 2017-18 SchoolChoice process, gave families a one-stop shopping experience to visit with representatives from DPS elementary, middle and high schools. Many DPS departments were also on hand to answer families’ questions. The Office of Choice and Enrollment Services held information sessions on the SchoolChoice process for families, which proved popular with attendees.

DPS families will now begin the process of narrowing their lists of potential school choices. Resources, such as the DPS Great Schools Enrollment Guide, will be available soon in schools and online here. Families are encouraged to start their search at their own neighborhood school, and begin scheduling individual school visits.

The SchoolChoice application process runs from Jan. 5-31, 2017, when students and families will rank their top five school preferences on the SchoolChoice form. The form will be available online via the DPS Parent Portal and at all DPS schools. For more information, call 720-423-3493, email or visit
