Neighborhood Residents - 2 Steps for enrollment

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 a two step process.

Step 1 - Confirm your plans to enroll at Deer Creek through EnrollJeffco. 
Between January 22 and February 1, go to EnrollJeffco to confirm that you want to enroll at your neighborhood middle school, Deer Creek.  For neighborhood residents, enrollment at Deer Creek is guaranteed.

Step 2 - Select your program: STEM or Humanities on the Deer Creek website
Although your enrollment at Deer Creek is guaranteed if you are a neighborhood resident, your 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 between January 16 and February 1. After that date, program choice will be limited to available seats.

Non-Neighborhood Residents - Apply for choice enrollment 

For students who reside outside of the Stony Creek or Ute Meadows school boundaries, please complete your application through EnrollJeffco. Through EnrollJeffco, you will be able to apply for choice enrollment for Deer Creek Middle School - STEM Program, Deer Creek Middle School - Humanities Program, or both.  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 for 2019-20.

Choice Enrollment Process

For residents outside of the Deer Creek area, an online choice-enrollment application through EnrollJeffco is necessary. The enrollment process runs from January 22 to February 8, 2019. Applications received at any time during the 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 2019-20
  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 2019-20
  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

After February 8, Jeffco will process all choice enrollment applications and contact families in mid/late February with their status and information for next steps.

For more information, please visit the EnrollJeffco website.


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.

Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, Jeffco will no longer provide busing to Deer Creek from the Bradford K-8 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.
