Enrolling Students & Registration

Enrolling Students

To enroll a student, use the EnrollJeffco link to access enrollment steps and important dates and deadlines for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Round 1 Choice Enrollment window is from December 10, 2019 to January 15, 2020.

Important information for all students who will be new to Dakota Ridge, including incoming 9th graders.

  • Round 1 choice applicants will receive offers or wait-list positions on January 29th, via the email you specified when applying. You will have three days to accept an offer; only one offer may be accepted.
  • Round 2 Application Window opens January 21st. Offers or wait-list positions will roll out in the order they have been received, beginning February 24th.
  • If you are on a wait-list, you will remain on that wait-list through Round 2 and be sent an offer if space becomes available anytime during that window. If you accept a wait-list offer, any previously accepted offer is automatically void to allow other students the spot if needed.

Enrollment and Registration for New and Returning Dakota Ridge Area Students, except for Summit Ridge 9th graders


  1. If you are new to our District, start by going to JeffcoConnect. Choose "New Parent/Guardian to Jeffco Schools" and begin the process of setting up a new parent account. If your student has ever attended a Jeffco School, DO NOT set up a duplicate account. Please call the Registrar to reset the password to access the original account. 

  2. Once you have created your parent account, click on “Add a New Student” and enter the information for each student you need to enroll in Dakota Ridge High School. After you have entered all of your student information, hit “Submit”.

  3. Log in to EnrollJeffco.org using the same Username and Password that was used for Jeffco Connect and submit your school enrollment selections. After you receive notification of enrollment from Dakota Ridge, you will be contacted by the Registrar to arrange a time to provide the following required documents:
  • Birth Certificate or Passport
  • Immunization Record
  • Proof of Residence (lease agreement, warranty deed, or utility bill)
  • Copy of 504 Plan or IEP if student was previously enrolled in special education classes
  • Copy of Behavior or Discipline Report and Attendance Records
  • School Report Card or transcript of grades and credits.
  • Any Court Ordered/Legal Documents/Guardianship Papers


  1. Since you are returning to Jeffco, you already have a JeffcoConnect account. DO NOT create a new account. Please call the Registrar to reset the password to access the account. If you have moved to the Dakota Ridge boundaries/attendance area, or are submitting a Choice Application through EnrollJeffco to attend Dakota Ridge, log in to JeffcoConnect to change your parent address. Then change the address of each student you have enrolled in a Jeffco school. Be sure and change the address for each and all parties living within the same household.

  2. Once you update the JeffcoConnect account and make your school selections in EnrollJeffco.org, contact the Registrar at Dakota Ridge High School to arrange a time to provide the required documents as listed above.

  3. You can use this school locator Jeffco app to help determine or confirm the school boundary for the address at which you reside.

Enrollment and registration for Summit Ridge 9th graders

If your student is currently enrolled at Summit Ridge Middle School AND you live within the boundaries/attendance area of Dakota Ridge High School, then your student will automatically be enrolled to attend Dakota Ridge High School for 9th grade. Your student will receive class registration materials at Summit Ridge Middle School in January/February.

If your student lives outside the boundaries/attendance area of Dakota Ridge High School and would like to attend Dakota Ridge High, then log in to EnrollJeffco.org for Choice Enrollment and select Dakota Ridge High School. Upon acceptance, you will be contacted for your student to complete class registration.
