Visiting & Enrollment at Odyssey
Families & educators are welcome to visit Odyssey on our Open House days. We start each Open House with a powerpoint presentation with our Executive Director. The presentation is followed with a Q & A session and a tour of our classrooms. To limit disruption in our classrooms, we try to limit visits to the Open House days. Open House Schedule
Application Process – How it Works
Odyssey is part of the DPS SchoolChoice Process. Families should research and visit schools prior to filling out the choice form.
Round 1 – Choice forms are available starting January 5th and the deadline to submit your choice form is January 31, 2017. Families will rank their top 5 school choices. Every student will be assigned to a school based on their lottery number and the order that schools are ranked on the form. Students are wait-listed on any higher ranked choices than the school they were assigned. Families are notified of their school assignment at the beginning of March.
Round 2 – This round is for families that missed Round 1 or have changed their mind since Round 1. Round Two SchoolChoice forms are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no lottery involved. If the school has available space for the 2017-18 school year at the time you submit your form, your student will be approved and enrolled for next year. If a wait-list exists, the student will be added to the end of the list. Please note: If your student was wait-listed at a school in Round One, DO NOT submit a Round Two form to the same school, as your student already has a spot on the school’s list.
If your family moves to Denver from outside the Denver Public Schools (DPS) boundary after February 1, 2017, contact the DPS Enrollment Hotline at 720-423-3493 or firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the New Denver Resident School Choice process.
