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
- District residents have priority consideration over nonresidents.
- There is space available at the student’s grade level.
- There is a school program appropriate for the enrolling student.
- The student must be in good standing in his or her previous school.
Schools may have additional criteria for open enrollment applications, especially at the middle and high school levels. Please visit the Open Enrollment Process (Residents and Non-Residents)
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 2018-2019 school year from October 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018. Applications are available at LPS schools and online October 1, 2017. After January 31, 2018, all applications for the 2018-2019 school year will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
