   A  Jeffco Schools has a "choice enrollment" option which begins in January and closes August 30 for the upcoming school year (i.e. choice enrollment for the 2009-2010 school year begins in January 2009 and ended August 30, 2009). After that date, students must wait for the following school year. Details about the choice enrollment process can be found at, Enrollment
