Colorado is an open enrollment state. Open enrollment allows parents to enroll their child in any public school as long as the family is willing to provide transportation. State law permits a district to designate a school as "full" and not accept Open Enrollments, but many do accept students. This law even allows students to cross district boundaries in order to attend the school of their choice. The boundaries of Adams 14 are shown in the map below.
Adams 14's open enrollment policy
Policy JFBB INTER-DISTRICT CHOICE/OPEN ENROLLMENT
The Board recognizes that students may benefit from having a choice of schools to attend within the public school system that is not limited by school district boundaries.
Nonresident students from other school districts within the state who apply pursuant to the regulations approved by the Board may enroll in particular programs or schools within this district on a space available basis without payment of tuition, except as otherwise provided by law.
In providing for admission of nonresident students, the school district shall not:
- Make alterations in the structure of the requested school or to the arrangement or function of rooms within a requested school to accommodate the enrollment request
- Establish and offer any particular program in a school if such program is not currently offered in such school
- Alter or waive any established eligibility criteria for participation in a particular program, including age requirements, course prerequisites and required levels of performance
- Enroll any nonresident student in any program or school after October 1
Before considering requests for admission from nonresidents, priority shall be given to resident students who apply under the district's open enrollment/transfer plan.
Students who were expelled from another school district during the preceding 12 months or whose behavior in another school district during the preceding 12 months was detrimental to the welfare or safety of other students or school personnel may be denied admission.
An elementary student who becomes a nonresident after enrollment or between school years shall be allowed to remain enrolled in or to re-enroll in elementary school in the district in accordance with state law and Board regulations. Secondary students who become nonresidents during the school year may complete the semester or other terms for credit. Seniors who become nonresidents during the school year shall be allowed to finish the school year as residents.
The Board reserves the right to rescind and/or amend any enrollment of nonresident students if, in its opinion, overcrowding of facilities or other undesirable conditions develop.
Transportation for students granted permission to enroll pursuant to this policy shall be furnished by their parents/guardians to a bus stop within the district if arrangements can be made to have the student ride on a district bus without disruption of regular routes and loading areas (not including handicapped/special education buses and routes).
Homeless and disabled students shall be transported, as necessary, in accordance with state and federal law. Buses from this district may enter the student’s district of residence to pick up or deliver the student only with specific permission of the Board of Education of the district of residence.
The Board, the Superintendent, other administrators and teachers shall not make any distinction on account of race, national origin, sex, ethnic group, religion, marital status, or disability of any student who may be in attendance or who seeks admission to any school maintained by the district in the determination or recommendation of actions under this policy.
Requests from the parents of special education students for admission shall be considered in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. The student's current Individual Education Plan (IEP) shall be used to determine if the requested school or program can meet the student's needs. Once the student is admitted, the district shall conduct a staffing to update the IEP.
The Superintendent shall present to the Board for its consideration any request from parents or legal guardians for exceptions to this policy.
