District 6 Open Enrollment Opportunities

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.

Greeley-Evans School District 6 families interested in enrolling their child or children in schools outside their home boundary school for the 2019-2020 school year will have from November 1, 2018 through December 21, 2018 to complete an open enrollment application. Parents will be notified via email of their student(s) open enrollment status prior to February 11, 2019.

 

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.


Transition Grades

Students transitioning from one school level to another will automatically be enrolled into their home boundary school for 2018-19 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


Transportation

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.


Charter Schools

Charter Schools have different enrollment procedures and timelines. Contact the school directly for their process and application.


High School Athletic Eligibility

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. Parents and students should make themselves aware of the CHSAA transfer rules before applying for open enrollment.


Fully Open-Enrolled Schools

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.
