About the Choice Program
The Delaware School Choice Program began in the 1996-1997 School Year. The law addressing School Choice is found in 14 Del. C Chapter 4 (See Delaware Code online).
A parent residing within the State of Delaware may seek to enroll that parent's child in a Delaware public school in any school district, charter school, magnet school or vocational-technical school through the standard application form. Any student not currently registered in a public school in the State of Delaware must be registered in their School of Residence before submitting a standard application form.
The standard application form may be accepted by the DOE and/or a receiving local education agency on or after the first Monday in November and on or before the second Wednesday in January. Charter schools, vocational-technical school districts, and magnet schools may continue to accept applications after the second Wednesday in January to fill remaining availability; however, those holding a lottery, will include applications received by the second Wednesday in January.
Families who do not have access to a computer or wish to have help with the process are invited to the Caesar Rodney District Office where we will assist you with submitting an application. This is done by appointment only. If you have a question regarding the School Choice program or application process, please contact the School Choice Office at (302) 698-4800 x 131.
