Open Enrollment for New Transfer Students

Transfer Students
Posted on 12/13/2018

Out-of-District Applications for the 2019-20 School Year (grades K-10) are now available on our website.

Out-of-district students currently enrolled in DCS are already accepted for 2019-20 and do not need to re-apply.

All completed applications must be submitted to the Superintendent’s Office for a time/date stamp. Only completed applications (all 3 forms) that have been received in the Superintendent’s Office will be considered.

Initial Application Window: January 3 – April 15


Non-Resident Transfer Student Applications will be accepted in the Superintendent’s Office beginning January 3, 2019 through the end of the business day on April 15, 2019. These applications will constitute the pool for a lottery to be held at the regular school board meeting in April. All qualified applications received during this window period will be part of the lottery and a determination will be made regarding their conditional acceptance that night. Those applicants not chosen during the lottery will be placed in the Supplementary Application Pool.


Supplementary Application Window: April 16 – August 9

Additional Non-Resident Transfer Student Applications may be accepted beginning April 16, 2019 through the end of the business day on August 9, 2019. These will be time & date stamped upon arrival to this office. Each school will accept new qualified transfer students in those grade levels which are not at capacity on a “first come, first served” basis until each grade level reaches capacity as set by the school board.
