REGISTRATION for the 2017/2018 School Year

It time to start thinking about registration for the 2017/2018 school year. At Cory Elementary, we do our registration online via the Online Verification System (OLV). We do not have a set registration day. Please make sure your children’s Parent Portal is up to date. It is a good idea to sign in at least once a month. Please see below for more details.

BENEFIT:
The OLV system offers an alternative to printing, mailing, and manually updating the pre-populated forms for all students! Parents can complete OLV for all of their students in their Infinite Campus primary household in one place, through their Parent Portal account.

WHO COMPLETES OLV:
Parents of currently attending or pre-enrolled students (active in IC)
***Students new to DPS can pre-enroll (with Round 2 Pre-enrollment Form and required documents) through June, then request a Parent Portal account and use OLV
***Students new to DPS who are not pre-enrolled by June will need to complete the New Student Registration paper packet

Please remember that only a member of the family’s primary household in Infinite Campus can complete OLV. For example, if the student’s primary household is with the mother and the student’s secondary household is with the father, only the mother can complete OLV for this student.

OLV WINDOW:
OLV will be open from July 20th until August 22nd at 5 p.m.

OLV is not first come, first served and will not affect the student’s enrollment. It is simply used to verify that all information in Infinite Campus is up to date.

CALL TO ACTION:
If you have not done so already, please create your Parent Portal account by visiting myportal.dpsk12.org and click on “Getting Started”. You will need an email address and one of your student’s ID#s. There are no more wait times for an account; you can NOW create your own account!

If you have questions and need more support with Parent/Student Portal, please email dps_portalteam@dpsk12.org or call 720.423.3163.

Enrollment and Registration

There are a few different processes you will go through depending on your specific situation:

Do you need to enroll in a DPS school? The first step is determining your neighborhood – or boundary – school. This is the school at which your student has a guaranteed seat. Click here to determine your neighborhood school.

Are you interested in attending a school other than your boundary school? You may take part in SchoolChoice, which offers a transparent, equitable way for your family to choose the best school for your student.

Finally, getting registered at the school in which you are enrolled is addressed below as well.

 

Find your neighborhood school

Are you a Denver resident new to DPS? You may enroll directly at the neighborhood school that serves your address. Click here to determine your neighborhood school. To enroll, contact the school office directly for registration dates, forms and required documents.

In some parts of Denver, DPS uses shared boundary enrollment zones. An enrollment zone is a geographic area in which students are guaranteed a seat at one of several schools, rather than one particular school. Click here for more information on DPS enrollment zones.

 

Need a new school?

If you want to enroll in a DPS school other than your neighborhood school, you may take part in SchoolChoice. The SchoolChoice process for the 2017-18 school year begins Jan. 5, 2017.

Families who want to transfer between schools during the current school year may submit an Administrative Transfer form. Transfer approval is based on space availability, demonstration of genuine need and student’s history. Families who are new to Denver or have moved within DPS during the school year can submit a Mid-Year Entry form. Enrollment at a new school is based on space availability. Contact the office of Choice and Enrollment at 720-423-3493 for information.
