Greeley-Evans School District 6 is now taking applications for students who want to attend a school that is outside their boundary area.
Any parent or guardian interested in enrolling their child in a school outside their home boundary for the 2020-21 school year must apply during the open enrollment period, which is Nov. 1, 2019, thorough Dec. 20, 2019. While District 6 is able to accommodate most open enrollment requests, it may not be able to approve requests for enrollment into schools, specific grade levels or special programs that are at or above capacity or cannot fulfill the specific needs of the student.
Parents will be notified via email of their student(s) open enrollment status prior to February 1, 2020. Parents have until March 27, 2020 to accept or deny an offer.
Students currently open-enrolled are eligible to stay at their current school through the highest grade offered at that school and do not need to apply yearly. All students approved for open enrollment to a school outside their home boundary, regardless of programming needs, will not be provided District transportation services to or from school.
Some District 6 schools are fully open-enrolled schools and do not have traditional boundaries. These are Chappelow Arts Magnet (K-8), Fred Tjardes School of Innovation (K-8), Early College Academy (9-12) and middle grades at Winograd K-8 (6-8). Families wishing to attend any of these schools must fill out an open enrollment application.
Students transitioning from one school level to another will automatically be enrolled into their home boundary school for 2020-21 unless a new open enrollment application is submitted and approved. This includes:
- 5th grade to 6th grade (except K-8 schools)
- 8th grade to 9th grade
Some District 6 charter schools have separate processes, policies and timelines. Contact the school directly for more information.
The Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA), which regulates eligibility for school sports and activities, places some restrictions on students' athletic eligibility if they transfer schools during high school. Students who transfer schools without a bona fide family move or hardship waiver will lose 365 days of varsity eligibility in any sport they participated in at their previous school. Parents and students should make themselves aware of the CHSAA transfer rules before applying for open enrollment.
Also, students approved for open enrollment to a school outside their home boundary, regardless of programming needs, will not be provided District 6 transportation services.
All open enrollment applications are online this year. More information can be found at www.greeleyschools.org/openenrollment.
Most District 6 schools are also hosting events where families and students can get more information about the school, its programs and opportunities for students. Click here for a list of open enrollment activities.

District 6 Volunteer program
The Greeley-Evans School District 6 Board of Education has adopted volunteer policies in an effort to improve safety at all District 6 schools.
All visitors to any non-charter District 6 school will need to present a form of identification at the front office in order to visit with your student. Volunteers will also need to present identification to log into the school at which they are serving.
Forms of identification that are accepted include a state driver’s license, a state ID, a military ID, a Mexican consulate ID and a passport. Once the ID is scanned and the identification of the visitor is verified, a visitor or volunteer badge will be printed out and must be worn while the entire time a person is in the school. Visitors and volunteers must also sign out at the office before they leave.
