Jeffco Schools Open Choice Enrollment

Jeffco students and families, who wish to enroll their children in a school other than their neighborhood school, have the option of participating in Jeffco Public Schools’ choice enrollment process for the 2015-16 school year.

Second-round choice enrollment for the 2015-16 school year runs from Friday, February 13 through Monday, August 31. Any student in Colorado may enroll in any Jeffco school that has classroom space. To access a choice enrollment form, visit Jeffco’s choice enrollment website.  
Fill out the choice enrollment form and submit it to the school of choice. Second round applications are added to the remaining names on the first-round list on a first-come, first-served basis. A separate application must be completed and submitted for each child. 

Jefferson-Area Plan Introduced to the Community

Parents and community members from the Jefferson-area recently joined their principals and district administrators to discuss how to create an enhanced educational experience for their students.

“We have a deep commitment to provide our students with the best educational opportunities,” said Jefferson High School Principal Michael James. “We joined together to map out a framework for our students and that has propelled the Jefferson Area Plan.” 

School principals from Jefferson High, Wheat Ridge 5-8 School, Edgewater, Lumberg, Molholm and Stevens elementary schools worked as a team to review best practices, research programs and systems and brainstormed innovative educational strategies to map out the Jefferson Area Plan, to help boost our schools’ student achievement. Learn more about the plan.

Alameda Area Facilities Recommendations

Jeffco Schools is seeking to continue the community conversation related to possible changes for schools in the Alameda articulation area. The proposed changes are needed to allow for improved classroom and common area conditions, specifically for Stein elementary school, and enable the school district to accommodate additional student enrollment in the Alameda area by creating a new elementary school in the Alameda articulation area. The plan we are seeking community input on also enables greater opportunities for students in the area as well as to align the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP), which serves all students in grades 7 through 10, into a single site on the Alameda International High School campus.

The following schedule provides details for the initial community conversations on the proposed plan: Read more.
