Choice and Enrollment

Posted April 12, 2022

Round 2 of the DPS SchoolChoice enrollment process for the 2022-23 school year opens 10 a.m. April 12 for all grades and closes 4 p.m. Aug. 31 for all grades except ECE (Round 2 for ECE remains open until April, 2023).

Who is it for?

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.

How do I apply?

Start at dps.schoolmint.net. Sign into your SchoolChoice account and apply to your preferred schools that have availability. If you don’t have an account, you can create one using your email address or a current Parent Portal log-in. 

How does Round 2 work?

Round 2 applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the application is received by the school, your student will be placed on a waitlist while the school processes the application. If the school has available space, your student will be approved and enrolled for next year. There is no lottery in Round 2, but priorities are given. If a waitlist exists, your student will be added to the list in date and time order within your given priority. Please note: This means that waitlist positions may change up or down.

If your student is accepted to a school in Round 2, any Round 1 school assignment is relinquished. You will remain on waitlists for any higher-ranked schools.
