Choice in Program
In Colorado you are not bound to the School District you live in. We have the Choice-In Program.
This program allows you to apply to have your child and children attend any school in Colorado Springs. There are certain application windows you need to pay attention to. make sure that you go to the schools website and learn about their application process and certain application window. It may start as early as November and can go until February for the following school year.
“Choicing-in” your child also means that there will be no school bus to take your student to the new school, you will have to provide the rides.
At this point there are 27 public Charter Schools. Charter schools are publicly funded, but independently operated from the school district. This allows for more freedoms in how teachers teach their classes.
