Enrollment After October
The public school enrollment count that determines school funding is established on or near October 1st each year. Jeffco schools receive the same amount of funding per pupil. Each school’s student count on or around October 1st determines the school’s total funding through Per Pupil Revenue.
Students who enroll after the October Count date are not added to a school’s enrollment number, so the school does not receive funding for these students; the students’ original school retains that funding.
RMAE will accept students, if a space is available, through the first day of Semester 2 (usually mid January).
RMAE will not accept 8th grade applicants after the October Count date, except for situations where the 8th grade applicant has a sibling in grades K – 7 who is already attending RMAE or who is applying for an open seat in those grades at the same time.
