Enrolling in Dennison

Dennison Elementary is an option school which means that there is no established neighborhood boundaries for enrollment.   For those who would like their students to attend Dennison they will need to follow the Choice Enrollment process.

Families interested in attending Dennison will need to complete an online enrollment application for each student to be eligible for the lottery.  If you are new to the district, you will need to start by going to the Enroll Jeffco website and fill out the school choice application. If you have students currently in Jeffco please use your Infinite Campus Parent login to sign in to Enroll Jeffco
Starting November 3, 2023, families can access Enroll Jeffco School Finder to view profiles for all of our Jeffco Schools.  The first round of choice enrollment will be open from December 5, 2023 - January 12, 2024.  During this window families can log-in to Enroll Jeffco (click EnrollJeffco link above) to complete your application for the lottery. We strongly recommend  having viewed the parent information presentation and participating in at least one of the Q and A sessions with administration.  We will be having 4 in person meetings this year and 3 opportunities for classroom observation.
All students will use EnrollJeffco to indicate where they will be attending school in August whether students are re-enrolling at the same school, changing schools, or just starting in Jeffco.

School choice is an important responsibility of all families.  Dennison is an option school that is textbook based with a traditional philosophy and instructional model.  It is critical for families to make thoughtful decisions in the selection of schools for their child(ren).  As a result, we ask all families interested in enrolling their students at Dennison to view the Prospective Dennison Family Information slideshow before making the decision to apply to Dennison.

Our Prospective Dennison Family Information slideshow is designed to give families more information about Dennison’s philosophy, instructional model, and operating principles. It is in the best interest for all our families to view and understand this program.
