Cory Families! 

We continue to miss the Cory Community! Please know that we are thinking about you and hope you are all safe and healthy. I appreciate the support and feedback from the community as we adjust our online model.  We are working so hard to support families with differing needs.  

With continual improvement at our focus, we are always looking for feedback from students, staff, and families.  Please use this link to provide feedback on our online model. I have also created a document to house all the information from parent meetings so it can be accessed at any time.  

At this time, we are learning and growing together. We thank you for your continued partnership.  Don’t forget that there is a small online auction today! Details are below.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Round 2 of the DPS SchoolChoice process for the 2020-21 school year is now open. Round 2 begins every year after families are notified of their Round 1 school placement, and ends in late August.

Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment of SchoolChoice for families who missed Round 1; took part in Round 1 but want to re-explore their options; or are new to DPS for next school year. Round 2 applications are available following Round 1 notifications by accessing your SchoolChoice account.  Read below for more information.

Who should submit a Round 2 SchoolChoice application?

● Families who did not take part in Round 1 and would like to change their student’s school.

● Families who have changed their mind since submitting a Round 1 application. If you are happy with your school placement following Round 1, you do not need to take part in Round 2.

● Please note: If your student was waitlisted at a school in Round 1, please DO NOT submit a Round 2 application to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s waitlist.

Please go to for more information.
