The School Assignment Process

School Assignment occurs when a student wants to participate in athletics (soccer, swimming, track, etc.) or activities (band, choir, etc.) at a different D20 school because that activity is not offered at their current school.

The assignment process is specific to athletics and activities governed by the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) at the middle and high school levels. Some programs at the middle school level may be capped. 

A student may also have an interest in an after-school activity that is offered at another school at the middle school level. These requests are not subject to the placement policy and must be directed to the school involved.

The Request For Participation (RFP) form (see Related Links on this page) must be completed annually and students may not participate until the assignment is completed.

Students who participate in home-based education or who do not reside in the district may be eligible to participate in our programs. For more information, please review Policy IGDJ R or contact the District Athletics and Activities Department at the Education and Administration Center via email or by calling 719-234-1214.

Once a student has been assigned a school for the requested sports or activities, that assignment will not change in subsequent years unless the student's school of enrollment changes to one that offers the requested programs. The RFP form must still be completed annually to ensure accurate placement based on the new school year.

When the student has been formally placed for the current school year, the student must register for the requested sport through the website of the school where they will be participating in that sport. Contact the assigned school's athletics department for questions or additional information. If a student has been placed for a co-curricular CHSAA activity, the student must work with counseling staff at the school involved to modify the student's schedule.
