The Student Resource fees support your student’s academic program. Families are encouraged to pay at the beginning of the school year but have the option to work out a payment schedule with the front office team.  

We understand that not all families are able to afford the Student Resource fees. If your family qualifies for, or may qualify for, free or reduced price lunch, DSST will partner with you to find an amount that you are comfortable paying. The reduced fee schedule below is a suggested amount so please work with the front office team to determine the amount you’d like to pay. 

Please note: Additional extracurricular activities may require fees to offset the cost of the club and families will be charged accordingly. 

Families are able to pay off their fees throughout the school year. They may be paid in cash (exact change), check or credit card. If you have further questions, please contact the office manager, Cecilia Soto at 303-802-4111 or at cecilia.soto@scienceandtech.org

Frequently Asked Questions  

1. What the the DPS Annual Family Update? 

The annual family update simply verifies and collects all information we have on file for you and your student. We want to make sure all phone numbers, addresses, and other relevant information is up-to-date. 

2. If I utilize the online option to complete registration, do I still have to come to the building 

No! NEW THIS YEAR. If you complete all the mandatory steps online (DPS Annual Family Update, Fees, and Free/Reduced Lunch application) you will not be required to stop by the school. Save some time, gas, and paper and complete 2018-2019 registration online! Click here for all the information.  

3. I came to registration last year. Do I have to do it again? 

Yes. Registration is a yearly event. We need to make sure that all information (household information, emergency contacts, medical forms, etc.) is up to date. 

4. We will still be out on summer vacation during registration. What do I need to do to make sure that my student is set for the year? 

If you cannot attend, please make sure you complete all the mandatory steps online (DPS Annual Family Update, Fees, and Free/Reduced Lunch application). If all mandatory components are completed, your student will be set for the first day of school. Click here for more information. All families must either complete mandatory steps online or come to the building either on 8/2 or 8/6 from 8a to 5p BEFORE the first day of school to complete registration. 

5. I have a middle school and high school student. Can I complete both registrations at one school? 

Families will be able to complete the DPS Annual Family Update once for both students online! While the middle school no longer requires families to come to the building to complete registration if they completed all mandatory steps online, the high school may still require families to stop by to complete certain portions that cannot be accessed online. Please reach out to the high school if you have questions regarding high school registration.
