Enrollment for District Resident Students

Parents or court appointed legal guardians of students who reside within the boundaries of Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 must provide proof of residency (warranty deed, bill of sale, settlement statement from closing, signed contract with closing date, or current signed rental agreement) to the District Administration Office to obtain a registration packet.  Parents who are residing in the district but do not have the aforementioned documentation should contact Gayla Powers at 475-6100 in order to ascertain how to proceed with registration. Parents must also provide each child's birth certificate, and most recent immunization record prior to enrolling.

Elementary Parents are encouraged to call the district 12 office before purchasing or leasing property in D-12 to inquire about neighborhood school availability by grade level.

Important note on elementary school assignment:  Living within the attendance area of a specific District 12 Elementary School does not guarantee enrollment in a particular school.  Due to Board of Education policy limiting elementary school class sizes, District 12 residents may be assigned to a District 12 elementary school other than their designated neighborhood school if a grade is at the maximum enrollment capacity established by the Board.  Parents 

Age Requirements for Enrollment

A child may enter kindergarten if five years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment.  District 12 only offers full-day kindergarten programs.

Students enrolling in the first grade may enter if they are six years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment.  A student who is at least five years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment shall be permitted to enroll in first grade if the student attended at least 120 days of kindergarten in another state.

Proof of birth date will be required.

Getting To and From School

Decades ago, the Cheyenne Mountain Board of Education made a commitment to invest the vast majority of its budget in our schools and in student programs.  This investment in our schools results in fewer resources for support services.  As a result, the Cheyenne Mountain School District does not operate a bus system and does not provide student transportation to and from school.  The District  will arrange transportation for students whose disability requires such transportation in accordance with federal law and/or an individual student's Individual Education Program.  If you have questions regarding your child's eligibility under these guidelines, please call the Office of Student Services at 719-327-2823.
