DENVER (CBS4)– A new computer program developed for Denver Public Schools will help connect students with the school best suited for them. It’s called School Match.

The program launched this week. Parents tried out the program on Thursday.

The goal is to help families and students search for schools that best meet their needs.

That could be the right fit in terms of academic standards or special after-school programming.

DPS said the program will help keep the system growing in enrollment.

“The critical aspect of that is to make sure parents get the best possible information about their schools and about the school to send their child to,” said DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg.

Colorado is among a few states that allow open enrollment if the school has space.

Enrollment for the 2013 school year begins in December. The first round of school choice ends in January.
