IRSD to Use Online System for School Choice Applications | Education


The Indian River School District will use the Data Service Center’s Delaware Public & Charter School Choice web application for 2022-2023. All IRSD school choice applications for 2022-2023 must be submitted online at

The 2022-2023 School Choice application period began on November 1 and will end on January 12, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. March 19, 2022, to accept or decline an invitation from a school. Decisions on Kindergarten applications will be made in May 2022. (Note: Kindergarten children must be registered with their home school before school-elective applications are considered.)

The Data Service Center online system is the school selection request receiving and processing tool for all public school districts in Delaware. “By submitting applications online at, parents benefit from a user-friendly interface that allows them to quickly submit applications to schools of choice for their children. The online system offers English and Spanish options for school elective applications.

When visiting, parents must create an account with a username and password. It is recommended that the username be an email address. Once the account is created, the parent can enter information about their child and select the child’s first, second and third school choices. A separate application must be submitted for each child. Parents can also enroll in the Spanish Immersion Kindergarten program. (Certain conditions apply for the application of Spanish immersion in the following years.)

The system will also designate district schools that are expected to have openings for 2022-2023. Schools that are at full capacity will be labeled as “At full capacity”. Parents will still be allowed to submit applications for “At Capacity” schools. However, these requests may be placed on a waiting list or denied due to capacity.

Parents will receive an email confirmation once their school choice request has been submitted. They can review, modify or withdraw an application at any time before the deadline of January 12, 2022 using the established username and password.

For more information on choosing the school or the online application system, contact the IRSD district office at (302) 436-1000.
