LPS offers many educational choices to resident and non-resident families and welcomes out of district students. Colorado state law allows nonresidents to enroll students in any Colorado school without paying tuition when state and district guidelines are followed. Resident families may attend their attendance-area school or apply for open enrollment at another LPS school.
LPS Open Enrollment Guidelines
To open enroll your students submit a completed open enrollment form along with documentation requested by the school. An open enrollment application may be submitted for the 2019-2020 school year from October 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019. Applications are available at LPS schools and online October 1, 2018. After January 31, 2019, all applications for the 2019-2020 school year will be considered on a first-come, first served basis.
*Existing LPS students do not need to register with Central Registration. All students NEW to LPS must register by completing an online pre-registration form and meeting with the Central Registrar.
Parents are responsible for providing transportation for open enrolled students. District transportation may be provided when space is available on established bus route. To see if bus transportation may be available, please visit the Bus Transportation page on the district website and complete an online “space availability” form. Space availability forms for the 2019-2020 school will not be available until July of 2019. Keep in mind that space available transportation requests may not be processed until October of 2019.
