In an effort to inform District 60 parents and others about the school choice process, this is the ninth of 12 blog posts explaining the process and helping guide parents with helpful tips along the way. Open enrollment for the 2020-21 school year begins Jan. 13, 2020. 

Pueblo School District 60 welcomes students from all over Pueblo County and beyond to transfer into District schools. Thanks to the school choice process, prospective out-of-district students have a pathway toward attending the District 60 school of their choice. 

Choosing your future school

Pueblo School District 60 has a variety of schools that cater to every student’s strengths. As long as you can make sure your child has transportation to school every day, you are more than welcome to submit an application for your child to attend a District 60 school.

We encourage you to take time in choosing a school to enroll your child. Don’t make a selection sight-unseen. For a thumbnail description, see our previous post about District 60's specialty schools, or simply contact a school and ask to visit. The school secretary will be more than happy to tell you about the school, or even provide a tour. 

What if I live in Pueblo, but previously attended an out-of-district school and want to come back?

We welcome Pueblo residents that want to “come home” and re-enroll at a District 60 school. As part of the school choice process, District 60 is allowed to give students and families in your situation an easier pathway to return by giving you preference. All students that apply into a school are entered into a lottery and names will be selected for any open spots at the school. If you live in Pueblo and want to come back, you have a bit of a better chance of having your name drawn than others. Learn more about the lottery process in one of our previous posts.

What’s the process to apply for my school of choice?

The process to apply to the school of your choice is actually quite easy. Find out more by reading our previous post about the application process or contacting the District 60 School Choice team at (719) 253-6014 or
