ECE 3: School Choice

Because ECE3 at Centennial was not an active program when the School Choice forms went out in December, the choice of ECE 3 at Centennial wasn’t included in the first round lottery process that concluded March 1st. However, they do have all the received applications in their system and will be holding a separate lottery just for ECE 3 at Centennial towards the end of this month. Look for letters with the results by April. Call DPS Choice and Enrollment Services 720-424-2639 if you have questions.
