Welcome to the DCSD Family!

If your child is of school-age and is not currently attending school, please enroll them as soon as possible. Enrolling, attending, and being engaged in school is so important for children so they may reap the social benefits of connecting with their peers, and avoid the negative consequences associated with learning loss.

Learning loss, particularly for our highest-needs populations such as students with disabilities, low-income students, English language learners, and students experiencing homelessness or in foster care, can have implications for years to come. In addition, without a connection to school, students may not be able to access school support personnel, like mental health professionals, who can help them address the trauma they have faced as a result of the pandemic and in their personal lives.


Simply contact your local school directly, or visit the DCSD Student Enrollment page of our website. Or, contact us at 720-433-0095 or sdis@dcsdk12.org.
