Neighborhood schools in District 6 are a great fit for our students and families, offering a well-rounded education that helps students reach their full potential. However, some families prefer programs that offer unique educational experiences that more closely align with their personal preferences, goals and needs. For these families, District 6 offers a variety of educational programs and schools via open enrollment.
Any parent or guardian interested in enrolling their child in a school outside their home boundary must apply during the open enrollment period. While the district is able to accommodate the vast majority of open enrollment requests, we 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.
Currently Opened-Enrolled Students
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.
Some D6 Charter Schools have separate processes, policies, and timelines. Contact the school for more information.
University Schools accepts applications throughout the year. To apply to University Schools, please go to our website at www.universityschools.com and click on School Info - Enrollment - Application for Enrollment. Please fill out the application and bring to the middle school office at 1717 65th Ave in Greeley.
Students transitioning from one school level to another will automatically be enrolled into their home boundary school for 2019-2020 unless a new open enrollment application is submitted and approved. This includes:
- Preschool to kindergarten
- 5th grade to 6th grade (except K-8 schools)
- 8th grade to 9th grade
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.

Homeless and Unaccompanied Youth
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines homeless youth as students whose living situation is not fixed, regular, and adequate. Unaccompanied youth are defined as students fitting the definition of homelessness as well as not in the physical custody of a parent or legal guardian. This Act requires school staff to eliminate barriers to academic and extracurricular activities. Visit the Family Center page for support.
