Open Enrollment for Grades 1-5

LPS Open Enrollment Process Begins October 1st

LPS offers many educational choices to resident and non-resident families and welcomes out of district students.  Resident families may attend their attendance-area school or apply for open enrollment at another LPS school. Colorado state law allows non-residents to enroll students in any Colorado school without paying tuition when state and district guidelines are followed.  

LPS Open Enrollment Guidelines

  • District residents have priority consideration over non-residents.

  • 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, grades, attendance and behavior, in his or her previous school.

  • Good standing applies to resident and non-resident students seeking new and continuing open enrollment.

Please visit the district website for more information on open enrollment:  http://littletonpublicschools.net/open-enrollment.

Open Enrollment Process

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 beginning 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.
