SchoolChoice Round 1 is Closed; Next Steps

Feb. 28, 2018

The first round of SchoolChoice for the 2018-19 school year is closed. More than 27,000 DPS families participated by ranking up to five school preferences on their SchoolChoice application.

Now what happens? We will spend a few weeks matching students to schools based on families’ school preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space. We will then send out placement notifications in early April. Click here to learn more about admission priorities.

Round 2 of SchoolChoice will open on May 1. Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment for families who missed Round 1; took part in Round 1 but want to re-explore their options; or are new to DPS for next school year. Families can apply directly to their preferred schools that have availability for next year. Visit for the latest information about SchoolChoice.
