Southwest Shared Access Zone

Recently, we have hosted several community meetings at our schools in Southwest Denver to discuss how to increase access to high-performing middle schools for all families in the region. We are proposing a shared access zone, which means that middle school students would have several options to choose from within a geographic area with a guaranteed spot at one of the included middle schools. A shared access zone will allow our students to be able to choose the program that’s best for them and receive priority enrollment over students that do not live in the Southwest, which means our students will have a better chance of attending a high-performing school.
