Indian River school choice application period opens Nov. 5

SELBYVILLE –  Indian River School District will utilize the Data Service Center’s web-based Delaware Public and Charter School Choice Application for 2019-20.

All IRSD school choice applications for 2019-20 must be submitted online at

The 2019-20 school choice application period opens Nov. 5 at 8 a.m. and closes Jan. 9 at 11:59 p.m.

The district will decide on all applications for grades 1-12 by Feb. 28. Parents will have until March 15 to accept a school’s invitation.

Decisions on kindergarten applications will be made in May.

Data Service Center’s online system is the school choice application receipt and processing tool for all Delaware public school districts.

When visiting for the first time, parents must create an account with a user name and password. It is recommended that the user name be an e-mail address. Once an account has been created, the parent can enter information about his or her child and select the child’s first, second and third school choices. Parents can also apply to special programs such as Spanish immersion, International Baccalaureate and the STEM pathway.

The system will also designate district schools that are anticipated to have openings for 2019-2020. Schools that are at capacity will be labeled as “At Capacity.” Parents will still be permitted to submit applications for at capacity schools.

Parents will receive an e-mail confirmation once their school choice application has been submitted. They may review, edit or withdraw an application at any time prior to the Jan. 9 deadline.

Parents who do not have access to a computer may apply in person at any district school. The online system offers both English and Spanish options for school choice applications.
