School of Choice
PSD has transitioned to a new website for School Choice called Smart Choice, and this is where families will access and complete a School Choice Application. Click on the link to visit the new website. This link can also be found by going to the PSD website, selecting the Schools tab at the top, and then choosing School Choice.
We always encourage families new to Fort Collins to complete a School of Choice application at our school. Because of continued growth and construction within our attendance area, we are limited in the number of students that we are able to accept from the School of Choice waitlist before the school year starts. We closely monitor our program capacity enrollment and notify families as soon as an enrollment slot opens for School of Choice students. We must operate within district guidelines and must adhere closely to our established program capacity enrollment. New students living within our attendance area who wish to attend Fossil Ridge High School for the next school year do not need to submit a School of Choice application. Neighborhood students are guaranteed an enrollment slot in our school before the school year starts regardless of our current enrollment capacity.
The School Choice Application for the next school year will become active on the first day of the current school year and will remain active until the first day of the next school year.
Any requests from families to change schools during the current school year will need to be processed using the School Transfer Request form.
