2019-2020 ENROLLMENT PROCESS

Jeffco Public Schools
has a new enrollment system!

USE ENROLLJEFFCO FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR 

Dec. 17: SchoolFinder opens
Jan. 22 - Feb. 8: All students use the system

Who should use EnrollJeffco?

All students will use EnrollJeffco in January to indicate where they will be attending school in August. Whether students are re-enrolling at the same school, changing schools, or just starting in Jeffco — everyone will use EnrollJeffco. 

When do I use EnrollJeffco?

Dec. 17: Jeffco SchoolFinder tool opens.  If you are interested in learning about different schools, browse through all 155 options in one place.

Jan. 22 - Feb. 8: Use EnrollJeffco to enroll in your neighborhood school (K-12), indicate you are returning to the same school, or apply to a different school of your choice (preschool and choice). There are three easy steps to using the new system:

1. Make sure your Jeffco Connect contact information is up to date for current students.  Contact your school if you do not remember your user name. New or prospective students will need to create a new account.

2. Find all the information you need to enroll right here on this page! There will be a button to browse schools starting Dec. 17, and a button to use the system on Jan. 22. All submissions are due midnight on Friday, Feb. 8, 2019.

3. If you submitted a preschool or choice application you will hear from all the schools you applied to in
Mid/Late February. EnrollJeffco users that applied for schools (choice enrollment or preschool) will receive a notification indicating (1) an opportunity to accept an offer, or (2) information about wait list placement, for each school application. You have five days to accept an offer; only one offer may be accepted.

August: Students register for their selected school using JeffcoConnect. Updated contact information, fees, emergency contacts, and "opt-outs" are captured in August. 

After mid-February, this system will be used year round for new students. Current students wishing to change schools during the school year must use the administrative transfer process.
