DENVER (KDVR) — Denver Public Schools (DPS) is extending the deadline for middle school and high school families to select or change their enrollment in either in-person learning or the virtual program for the second quarter. The new deadline for middle and high school families has been extended to the end of the day on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Elementary students will return for 100 percent in-person learning while secondary students will utilize of hybrid model of in-person and remote learning.
Elementary students will be phased in, with kindergarteners and some first graders starting the week of September 28.
All elementary students will be in class by Oct. 21. Secondary students will return for a mix of in-person and remote learning on Oct. 21.
DPS said it needed families to submit their preference by Friday to give the district time to determine staffing for its schools and virtual learning program.
If DPS does not receive a student’s preference by Wednesday’s deadline, that student will be automatically enrolled in the district’s virtual program.
Families can select their preference within the Parent Portal on DPS’s website. Families can also complete a PDF form and return it to their student’s school or call the front office of their student’s school and make their selection over the phone.
