It’s that time of year! We’re starting to prepare for the 2024-25 School Year (can you believe it?!?), and we need our CURRENT STEM Families to complete the Intent to Return/Not Return process.

This information will help our Leadership Team plan for the new school year regarding budgeting, facility use, staffing, and more. This process also helps us to know how many new students we will have openings for in the upcoming school year so that we can invite students during the Open Enrollment Window during the month of December.

Please complete a separate form for each of your CURRENTLY ATTENDING STEM students so that we know your student is either returning or not returning to STEM. Completing the form does not require your student to attend STEM for next year should you change your enrollment plans. The form allows you to update your submission should you change your mind over the next few months.

If you are planning on staying at STEM for the 2024-25 school year, you do not need to do anything during the Open Enrollment window. Please email info@ with any questions about this message.

Current Families with Siblings Wanting to Attend STEM

Does your current STEM student have a sibling interested in attending STEM for the 2024-25 school year? Did you know that they have priority during the Open Enrollment window? Please be sure to complete the Open Enrollment process that opened on November 1 through the DCSD Open Enrollment Engage Portal. The First Round of Open Enrollment will close on December 1.

Looking to enroll in your neighborhood school (or another Charter School using the DCSD Open Enrollment Tool)?

Families who are looking to leave STEM to attend their neighborhood school or attend another Charter School (that uses the DCSD Open Enrollment tool), must complete the Open Enrollment process through the DCSD Open Enrollment Tool. The First Round of the Open Enrollment Window for DCSD will close on December 1 at 4 p.m. The Second Round of the Open Enrollment Window will open on January 22 at 8 a.m. and close on August 1, 2024, at 4 p.m.

(Note: Parents of any students who wish to go back to their neighborhood middle school for their 7th-grade year must file an intent to return form, by January 10, 2024; applicable also for parents of 6th-grade students whose attendance area is within the Cimarron Middle School, Rocky Heights Middle School and Sagewood Middle School boundaries.
