Central Enrollment Office Assistance
The District will be closed Monday, February 20, 2017
We're open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
We are now accepting enrollment applications for the 2017-2018 school year (school year beginning August 2017)
When completing the application, please choose 2017-18 if you are enrolling your children for school beginning in August 2017.
If you are enrolling your children for the remainder of the current school year, you will choose 2016-17
Our enrollment team will assist in getting your child registered in District 49. We're located at 3850 Pony Tracks Drive in Colorado Springs. Our office phone number is 719.494.8911. You may call with any questions, or use our live chat feature.
Tip: To expedite the enrollment process, ensure you have all required documents listed on this page. An enrollment cannot be processed without these documents. It is each parent or guardian's responsibility to upload these documents. If you do not have the birth certificate or immunization records, please contact the previous school or pediatrician and request to have them sent directly to you. The enrollment office does not request school records or accept faxes from previous schools.
Transcripts: Once enrolled in District 49, school-level registrars request records, such as transcripts, grades and attendance. For new students enrolling in high school, parents or guardians should request transcripts from the previous school and take them to the new school as soon as an application is complete. This helps high school counselors quickly review credits and compile a schedule, which includes an official start date.
How will I know when my application has been processed?: When your application has been processed, you will receive an email from D49Dailer with information regarding your next steps. After application submission, frequently check your email, junk and spam folders for this email.
Will I be informed if my application is incomplete or needs additional information?: Yes. If for some reason, there are any documents or other information missing from your application, you will be sent a ticket from our LiveChat system that will include your application number in the title and will list out what is needed to allow further review and processing.
Do I need to wait to enroll until my child has their yearly physical and receives updated immunizations? No. If you have immunization records - even if they will change with an upcoming physical - you may enroll. Once your child has had their yearly physical and received updated immunizations, simply take the most current immunization report directly to the school for updating.
I've heard that District 49 has a military liaison/transition coordinator - is this true? Yes! We are happy to announce that District 49 has a Military Student Transition Consultant. Dr. Lee Ann Wade is available to assist you with the transition process and any questions you may have about this. She can assist with active duty and retired military as well as Civil Service, National Guard and those in the Reserves. Dr. Wade is located at the Creekside Success Center located at 3850 Pony Tracks Dr., Room 106B, Colorado Springs, CO 80922. Her phone number is 719-460-8036 and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to give her a call.
I've heard that there is a waiting list - can I "enroll" my child early to get on this list? Contrary to what you may have heard, there are no waiting lists for coordinated (non-charter) District 49 schools. With the exception of the Preschool Department which keeps a waiting list for the current school year only, all other grades have no waiting lists. When you submit your enrollment application, your child will be enrolled in their neighborhood school (unless you have an acceptance letter from a different District 49 school such as Patriot High School, Pikes Peak Early College, Springs Studio for Academic Excellence, Falcon Home School Program, Imagine Classical Academy or Pikes Peak School of Expeditionary Learning). If, by the time you enroll, the neighborhood school is full for a particular grade(s), the school will discuss this with you and explain where your child will be enrolled at due to the overflow.
Please know that there may be waiting lists at District 49 charter schools which consist of Imagine Classical Academy, Pikes Peak School of Expeditionary Learning, Rocky Mountain Classical Academy, Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, Power Technical Early College. Please contact these schools directly for information regarding waiting lists and how to get on the list.
I enrolled my child - when will I receive Parent Portal access? Our Student Information Systems Specialist sends out the Parent Portal invitation email periodically. This email will come from D49Dailer and will have a one time use link on it. If you click on the link but do not finish the account creation, the link will not work again. When you receive this email, and are ready to click on the link, please ensure that you are not using Internet Explorer or Edge as these browsers are incompatible with the Parent Portal system. Instead, please always use, Firefox, Chrome or Safari.
If you did not receive the email or have clicked on the link and it is no longer usable, please visit the D49 website, go to the Community Support tab and then to Parent and Student Portal. From there you may either send us a message by clicking on the red Leave Message button or start a chat with us if you see the green Chat Now button. In the message, please identify yourself by the name used when enrolling your student(s), the student(s) name(s) and date(s) of birth to help expedite the look-up process.
I already have other children in the District, do I still need to provide proof of residency? Yes. Proof of residency must be current (dated within the last 60 days) and cannot be anything with late or disconnect notices.
Can I upload multiple files in each field? No. Each upload field will accept one document only. If another document is uploaded, it will overwrite (erase) the previous document uploaded. If you have a multiple page proof of residency (housing contract or lease/rental agreement) or multiple page immunization record, you will need access to a scanner that will scan multiple pages into one file or a phone app that will allow multiple pictures to be combined into one file.
Can I apply using my phone? Possibly. The application process may be done via your phone as long as your phone's browser is not Internet Explorer or Edge. Please keep in mind the file upload requirements. If you are taking photos with your phone of your documents and if you need to upload multiple documents into one file (such as a notarized letter and utility bill if residing with another family), you will need to have a phone app installed that will allow multiple photos to be combined into one file.
