All About SchoolChoice

January 29, 2021

Submit your SchoolChoice application by Feb. 16

The 2021-22 school year brings with it the promise of a new beginning, and now’s the time to look ahead and submit your application for your child’s preferred schools for next fall. The SchoolChoice window is open now through 4 p.m. Feb. 16. Thousands of DPS families have already applied for next year — and you can, too! By applying during the first round of SchoolChoice, you’re more likely to get your most-preferred school!

We know it may be challenging to make school choices for next year during these uncertain times. We’re hopeful for a more normal return to school next fall, which is why we don’t want you to miss the opportunity to apply to your preferred schools during the current SchoolChoice window. DPS will continue to monitor health conditions to determine whether a virtual learning option will be available for the 2021-22 school year. In the meantime, please complete your SchoolChoice application by ranking your schools in order of preference assuming a full return to in-person learning next year.

To apply, simply create an account or sign in using your Parent Portal username and password here. Then, rank your schools in order of preference (up to 12) and submit your SchoolChoice application by 4 p.m. Feb. 16. You’ll be notified of your results in late March.
