Department of School Choice
How to Apply for School choice
All applications for School Choice must be completed and returned to the Paul L. Dunbar Administration Building (District Office) according to the established timelines. Preference is given to District residents. The District determines eligibility criteria for School Choice applicants. Once a student is accepted as a School Choice enrollee, the student is required to continue to meet the same academic, attendance and discipline criteria as required for School Choice acceptance. Each year a School Choice enrollee’s profile will be reviewed to determine that the student is maintaining the eligibility criteria. If the School Choice enrollee is not meeting the criteria, the student’s enrollment is subject to termination at the end of the current school year.
Whenever a Caesar Rodney School District resident student moves from the District, it is the responsibility of the parent to immediately notify the school and file a Good Cause Affidavit in order to be considered for continuing enrollment. Otherwise the parent is obligated to immediately transfer the student to the school that serves the student’s new residence. All questions regarding School Choice should be directed to the District School Choice Coordinator (698-4800)
