School Choice Deadline extended to Tuesday, February 21, 2023

The system that DPS uses to accept and process SchoolChoice applications experienced some technical issues and some families were unable to complete their SchoolChoice applications. To ensure that all families are able to submit an application for their student, the Round 1 deadline has been extended to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21. Only 8th graders are asked to submit a School Choice application through the Parent Portal. 


Our CMAS testing will take place between March 20-April 28, 2023. CMAS is one measure of student proficiency on the Colorado Academic Standards. These standards provide clear and consistent guidelines on what students should know and be able to do at the end of the year, across grade levels and subject areas. And although CMAS is just one measurement of learning, results help to provide answers to important questions about your student’s academic achievement. 

Your support during CMAS is appreciated as state assessments are vital tools that contribute towards student success. If you plan on excusing or opting your student out from CMAS your, please do so in the Parent Portal by February 28. This allows our school enough time to plan and schedule.
