Where Denver parents most want to send their kids to school
More than 23,500 families in Denver applied for school choice applications in the first two months of this year, Axios Denver's partners at Chalkbeat report.
By the numbers: About 2,800 fewer families — particularly those with students in preschool and kindergarten — submitted their forms compared to last year, a 10.6% decline.
Why it matters: The trend could have big financial implications for Denver Public Schools if it continues, according to Chalkbeat.
Chalkbeat’s database also revealed:
- DSST Green Valley Ranch High School and East High School are the top two schools where parents want their kids to attend.
- More students — 89%— got into their first-choice schools, compared to 84% last year.
