School Choice
Appoquinimink Schools participate in the statewide School Choice Program based on available seating capacity. While every attempt is made to satisfy the requests of families residing within the district, fast-paced growth severely limits our flexibility in the matter, forces us to require parents to submit applications annually, and may result in the denial of requests if buildings are over capacity.

Applications will be made available in the fall for the following school year under the REGISTRATION button on the district website. The closing date to submit an application is the 2nd Wednesday in January unless otherwise noted. Notification about the status of pending applications will occur by letter, usually in or around March.

Late applications will be placed on a waiting list and held for processing until July 15, when a determination about available capacity will be made. For more details, read the School Choice Policy posted below.
