Admissions Policy
Two Roads Charter is a Jeffco public school, and as such, any student is eligible to enroll and/or apply to attend. Priority for open seats is addressed in the section below. Two Roads follows Jefferson County's School Board Policy JFBA and Regulation JFBA-R for choice enrollment. Families wishing to enroll their children at Two Roads must adhere to the process for choice enrollment (see below).

Admission Guidelines and Eligibility
Enrollment is open and tuition-free to any child meeting student eligibility requirements including but not limited to: a) age requirements (see below); b) the ability of Two Roads Charter School to adequately meet the applicant's special needs; c) whether the applicant has committed serious violations in a school building or on school property.

Students requiring special services (IEP)
In an effort to better serve its students, Two Roads will limit the number of IEP students to no more than 12% of the full time student count. All applicants with an IEP will be reviewed and a determination will be made whether the needs of that student can be met considering our current IEP students and Student Services Team load.

Denial of Admission
The following are grounds for denial of admission to students requesting choice enrollment:

  • There are no openings available.
  • It is determined that Two Roads Charter School does not offer appropriate programs or is not structured or equipped with the necessary facilities or personnel to meet the special needs of the student, or does not offer the particular program requested. Acceptance of Special Education students is conditional pending review of outcomes and space availability (see above).
  • The student does not meet the established eligibility criteria for participating in a particular program, including but not limited to age requirements.
  • The student has been expelled from any school district during the preceding 12 months, or has engaged in behavior in another school district during the preceding 12 months that is detrimental to the welfare or safety of other students or of school personnel.
  • The student has been expelled at any time or is in the process of being expelled and/or the student has been identified as a “habitually disruptive student” as defined by Jefferson County School District Regulation JK-R.
  • The student or parent provided false or inaccurate information at any time during the enrollment application process.

Waiting Lists

A waiting list is established at each grade level for those not admitted during the lottery. Position on the waiting list is determined during the lottery process for applications received before the application deadline. Applications received after the deadline are added to waitlists in the order we receive them.  Applicants are notified of their position on the waiting list and spaces are filled in numerical order from the list.

Two Roads will admit students on a space available basis through September 1.  After this day, all students are dropped from the wait-lists. Students must re-apply to seek admittance for the following school year.

Mid-Year Admissions
Mid-year administrative transfers occurring after September 1 must be approved by the principals of both the school the student is currently attending and that of the receiving school. If the student is not admitted through choice enrollment and the administrative transfer is denied, the student will continue to be enrolled at their original school. Choice enrollment applications after October count are considered on a case-by-case basis.
