2018-19 Enrollment

We are in Second Round Choice Enrollment

For information about our programs, please visit the STEM and Humanities pages.

Neighborhood Residents

For students who reside within the Stony Creek or Ute Meadows elementary school boundaries, Deer Creek is the assigned or “home” neighborhood middle school. This is also true of any student who lives in the Stony Creek or Ute Meadows areas but attends a different elementary school. For these students, enrollment at Deer Creek is guaranteed. However, choice of program - STEM or Humanities - requires families to submit their Program Selection Form to ensure that resident students receive their first choice of program. Forms must be submitted online before the choice enrollment window opens on January 8. After that date, program choice will be limited to available seats.

Non-Neighborhood Residents

For students who reside outside of the Stony Creek or Ute Meadows school boundaries, please complete the online Choice Enrollment Application. Information about the choice enrollment process is located below. Note: We do not anticipate any choice enrollment openings in the 7th or 8th grade STEM program.

Please note that there is a student response question as part of all the enrollment forms. To help your student prepare a response, this is the question: In 200 words or less, please share with us the reason you have chosen the program you selected.

Choice Enrollment Process

First Round
For residents outside of the Deer Creek area, an online choice-enrollment application is necessary. The First Round Choice Enrollment process runs from January 8 to January 31, 2018. Applications received at any time during the first round window are entered into a lottery, based on the following priorities established by Jeffco:

  1. Jeffco Resident with a currently enrolled sibling who will also be attending Deer Creek in 2018-19
  2. Jeffco Resident and child of a full-time staff member at Deer Creek
  3. Jeffco Resident and currently attending Stony Creek or Ute Meadows through choice-enrollment
  4. Any other Jeffco Resident
  5. Non-Jeffco Resident with a currently enrolled sibling who will also be attending Deer Creek in 2018-19
  6. Non-Jeffco Resident and child of a full-time staff member at Deer Creek
  7. Non-Jeffco Resident and currently attending Stony Creek or Ute Meadows through choice-enrollment
  8. Any other Non-Jeffco Resident

At the end of the first round, each application is assigned a random number. The applications are sorted by their priority level and the random number. Seats are then filled from the top of the list until the programs are full. Remaining applications are placed on a wait list.

Second Round
Second Round Choice Enrollment process runs from February 9 through August 31, 2018. Applications received during the second round window are added to the bottom of first round wait lists in the order the applications are received.


Transportation

Jeffco busing is available to many families in the Ute Meadows and Stony Creek areas. To see if you are eligible for busing and to find the bus stop nearest your home, visit Jeffco's InfoFinder site.

For the 2018-19 school year, Jeffco will continue to provide busing to Deer Creek from the Bradford area. After the 2018-19 school year, busing will no longer be available from the Bradford area.

For choice-enrolled students, we are pleased to partner with Schoolpool, a carpool networking system. Schoolpool is a service of Way to Go, a federally funded program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). It's free and there is no obligation to participate. Using a secure website, parents register to find and contact other interested Deer Creek families in their area to set up carpools. For more information about the service, visit Schoolpool. Please contact the Deer Creek office to receive the enrollment code required to join our Schoolpool group.
