Prospective Parents

Open Enrollment Questions

Littleton Public Schools offers many educational choices to resident and nonresident parents and students. State law allows nonresidents to enroll students in LPS or any other Colorado school without paying tuition when state and district guidelines are followed.

The open enrollment window for the 2019-2020 school year will begin on October 1st.

Resident requests for open enrollment will receive priority consideration over nonresident open enrollment requests from October 1st through January 31st. After January 31st, all applications—resident and nonresident—will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • There must be room in the grade level the student will enter.
  • There must be a program in place in the new school that is appropriate for the enrolling student.
  • No district transportation will be provided unless there is room on an established route.
  • The student must be in good standing in his or her previous school.
  • Nonresident students must give annual notice for continued enrollment at the same school.
  • Nonresident students changing schools must reapply for open enrollment.

 What is the process for open enrollment at Newton?
