District Resident Enrollment

Parents or court appointed legal guardians of students who reside within the boundaries of Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 must provide proof of residency (warranty deed, bill of sale, settlement statement from closing, signed contract with closing date, or current signed rental agreement). Parents must also provide each child's birth certificate, and most recent immunization record. Parents who reside in the district and have questions about enrollment should contact Liz Kruse at the District Office at 719-475-6100.

Important note on elementary school assignment: Living within the attendance area of a specific District 12 Elementary School does not guarantee enrollment in a particular school. Due to Board of Education policy limiting elementary school class sizes, District 12 residents may be assigned to a District 12 elementary school other than their designated neighborhood school if a grade is at the maximum enrollment capacity established by the Board.

Minimum Age - District 12 only offers full-day kindergarten programs. A child may enter kindergarten if they are five years old on or before October 1 of the year of enrollment or transferring from enrollment in a kindergarten program in another school district. Proof of birth date will be required.

The Board of Education does not allow exceptions to this policy. 

Getting To and From School

Decades ago, the Cheyenne Mountain Board of Education made a commitment to invest the vast majority of its budget in our schools and in student programs. This investment in our schools results in fewer resources for support services. As a result, the Cheyenne Mountain School District does not operate a bus system and does not provide student transportation to and from school. The District will arrange transportation for students whose disability requires such transportation in accordance with federal law and/or an individual student's Individual Education Program. If you have questions regarding your child's eligibility under these guidelines, please call the Office of Student Services at 719-327-2823.
