.Student Priority Placement is as follows (per J.A. Board Policy):

 

  1. Current students and staff children.

  2. Siblings (lottery if necessary). Sibling priority will be given to a prospective student if they have a currently enrolled sibling at Summit South that intends to return the following school year. Any student who receives an enrollment spot because of sibling priority will have their spot rescinded should the currently enrolled sibling withdraw or transfer prior to the start of the following school year.

  3. Choice enrollment, first round in-county (lottery) and qualifying siblings of students admitted during this process.

  4. Choice enrollment, first round out-of-county (lottery) and qualifying siblings of students admitted during this process.

  5. Choice enrollment, second round in-county (first come, first served) and qualifying siblings of students added to the wait lists during this process.

  6. Choice enrollment, second round out-of-county (first come, first served) and qualifying siblings of students added to the wait lists during this process.

PLEASE NOTE:  Enrolling at The Summit Academy South does not affect your enrollment status at The Summit Academy in Westminster or at Jefferson Academy in Broomfield. These schools have separate admission procedures in Enroll Jeffco, and Choice Enrollment priority admission does not transfer between the schools.

 

Important Information to Note from Jeffco about Choice Enrollment in The Summit Academy South:

1. An approved application for Choice Enrollment shall be valid for attendance at the current school for the remainder of the current school level that the school serves - elementary, middle or high school.

2. Students who wish to return to their neighborhood school or to enroll in a different school must submit a Choice Application or Administrative Transfer Request following the timelines for these applications.

3. All Choice Enrollment high school students must comply with all CHSAA (Colorado High School Activities Association) requirements and bylaws. A student who transfers from School A to School B without a bona fide family move will be ineligible for varsity competition in the first 50 percent of the maximum regular season contests allowed in any sport in which the student was a participant in the last twelve months. Other factors may also influence athletic eligibility.

4. Transportation is not provided for Choice transfers.

 

Sibling Priority- The Jeffco Public Schools policy allows siblings to attend the same school by giving enrollment priority to children in the same household. One sibling must currently be enrolled at the requested school and scheduled to return to the requested school. If you are applying to have your child attend a school other than his/her assigned school, requests will be approved based on space availability and there is no guarantee that your child will be able to attend any school other than the assigned school.  Parents certify that the information given in this document is true, complete, and correct.
