Enrollment & Registration


 Enrollment at Renaissance Elementary Magnet School

Renaissance Elementary is a Magnet school within the Douglas County School District.  REMS has special programming and a slightly modified calendar from other DCSD neighborhood schools.  Families wanting to attend REMS must complete an Orientation (currently offered virtually) and submit an application following the Douglas County Schools Open Enrollment process.  


Open Enrollment Round One is November 1, 2022 at 8am - December 1, 2022 at 4pm. 

Families can see offers on December 12th at 8am by logging into EngagED Parent Portal.

Families have until December 19th at 4pm to accept offers.

Second Round will open January 23th, 2023 and run through August 1st, 2023.

First Round Open Enrollment is now closed. REMS extended offers of open enrollment based on space availability and parents had until December 19th to accept any offers. In the event you did not receive or accept an offer during the First Round,  you will remain on a waitlist for the Second Round of Open Enrollment which opens on January 23rd. REMS will reach out to you via email when and if a spot becomes available between 1/23/23 and 8/1/23.


If you have a currently enrolled REMS student and you would like to enroll a sibling, you must complete the following by December 1st:

2. Complete the DCSD Open Enrollment Process (linked above)


New families applying to REMS must complete the following to be considered for enrollment:

The purpose of the orientation is to provide parents with detailed information about Renaissance Elementary in order to make sure it is the right choice for your student and family.​  If you have attended an orientation within the last two years you do not need to attend another orientation (please email our Registrar, Hope Corrales, with your name and orientation year so we can verify your attendance.)
All Orientations are held virtually and will include a guided presentation followed by a question and answer session.  Several questions have been asked during the Virtual Orientations and in the interest of time have been compiled and answered here:  Questions and Answers.
Before exiting the Virtual Orientation, you must complete the Confirmation of Attendance Form which completes the open enrollment requirements.
