School of Choice and IntraDistrict Transfers


School of Choice​

The Cherry Creek School District allows its resident students to apply for enrollment in the Cherry Creek school/program of their choice.  In other words, you may request that your child attend a Cherry Creek school outside your assigned attendance area.  The School of Choice applications are an electronic application that you can access online during the month of January from any computer, at any time. Please note that there are NO PAPER FORMS available for the School of Choice application process.
There is a limit of one (1) application per student and all information is verified for accuracy. Applications are considered on a space available, lottery basis with priority given to families with siblings at the school and to the children of employees of the district.  

Parents will be notified of the decisions by March 15th and any appeals must be submitted in writing to District Admissions by April 15th.  The Appeals Committee will review all letters​ received, and parents will be notified of the final decision by May 15th. 
Please note: ​
  • Students currently attending a school under School of Choice or an IntraDistrict Transfer approved to the highest grade level do NOT need to submit an application to return to that school next year.  
  • Non-Resident student applications will be available online starting April 1st 
  • Requests to attend preschool, charter schools (Cherry Creek Academy & Heritage Heights Academy) and a magnet school (Challenge School) do NOT use the School of Choice process.  Please contact the school directly for assistance on their application process.
  • There is not a specific "time" that the forms will be made available or removed on Feb 1, so please do not wait until the last minute to submit your application. Late applications cannot be accepted.  ​​​​
  • The address you indicate on your form must be current, and must be within the boundaries of Cherry Creek School District. 

The applications for School of Choice 2019 are no longer available.   
Please submit an IntraDistrict Transfer for the 2019-20 SY after March 15th.  

IntraDistrict Transfers​
Families can request that their child attend a school other than their neighborhood school at any time throughout the year.  IntraDistrict Transfer requests are available online only and are specific for grade level and school year.  Requests are considered on a space availability basis for the grade level needed.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
