Three Choice Windows
- First Round (priority consideration): Dec 1st - Jan 31st (for next school year)
- Second Round: Feb 1st - Mar 31st (for next school year)
- Third Round: First Monday in August - mid-Sept (for current school year)
Families wishing to enroll in Adams 12 Five Star Schools for the next school year should apply for priority consideration during the first round of Choice. There is a second and third round for schools that have space available after the first round has closed.
All applications are accepted via the district’s online Choice application. For families without computer access, a computer kiosk will be available at each school or the Educational Support Center. All applications received by the deadline are included in a lottery for available spaces (the process is not first-come, first served). Families are notified via US mail no later than the third week of February for the 1st round, and the third week of April for the 2nd round.
Families interested in enrolling for the current school year can apply for schools open in the 3rd round of Choice from July 31st to mid-September (or until space available is filled). While the 1st and 2nd round of Choice is lottery based, applications in the 3rd round of Choice are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. On July 31st, schools open to the 3rd round of Choice will be posted online at the district Choice webpage.
