Open Enrollment

Aspen View Academy participates in the annual Douglas County School District (DCSD) online Open Enrollment process to fill K-8 openings. Parents interested in K-8 enrollment at AVA need to complete DCSD Open Enrollment for their child to be eligible for openings. (Previous year’s Open Enrollment lists do not “roll forward.”) Open enrollment is only for families who wish to move their student(s) to a school that is different from their assigned neighborhood school. Students who are currently enrolled at Aspen View Academy do not need to complete the Open Enrollment process.

K-8 Open Enrollment (round two) is now open through August 1, 2022 at 4:00 pm.  

The Open Enrollment process is for NEW enrollment to AVA and current Pre-K students. This does NOT apply to current K-8 Students. 

If you are looking for a spot for this school year, please contact enrollment@aspenviewacademy.org.

How Open Enrollment Works

Open Enrollment can only be completed online through DCSD’s Open Enrollment tool during the Open Enrollment windows. Parents wishing to Open Enroll need a DCSD EngageEd Parent Portal account.

Parents who have a student enrolled in any DCSD school should already have a DCSD EnagED Parent Portal account. Parents who have forgotten their account credentials or are having trouble logging in to their Parent Portal, SHOULD NOT create a new account. This may VOID the Open Enrollment application. Parents either should contact their child’s current DCSD school for assistance or the DCSD Choice Programming office.

Parents who have never had a student enrolled at a DCSD school will need to create a DCSD EnagED Parent Portal account. (Please note: Account creation cannot be done before Open Enrollment begins. You will create your account during the Open Enrollment process.) Once created, parents will use their credentials (username and password) to access and complete Open Enrollment for their child. Parents should retain these credentials for future use.

Intent to Return (for current families)

If you are a current Aspen View Academy family, you need to complete the AVA Intent to Return form. This usually happens after the Winter Break. Please complete the Intent to Return Form for each of your currently attending AVA students (both if they are returning or enrolling elsewhere). You do not need to “do the DCSD Open Enrollment process to remain at AVA — if your student is currently attending AVA, they will be automatically enrolled for next year as long as you complete the Intent to Return form.

For the 2022-23 School Year, the Intent to Return form must be returned to the office by February 18th, 2022 to reserve your child’s spot.
