Annual Reporting

In order for your nonpublic school (private or homeschool) to remain in an open and active status, the school administrator must report attendance and enrollment annually to Delaware Department of Education via the Nonpublic School Application. This is pursuant to Delaware law, 14 Del.C. § 2704:

(a) All persons conducting nonpublic schools shall report end of the year attendance information to the DDOE annually, on or before July 31, on such forms as shall be prescribed by the DDOE.

(b) Such persons shall also submit annually, no later than October 5, a statement of pupil enrollment as of the last school day in September, on such forms as prescribed by the Department of Education

You do not need to reapply for a new school each year.

The DDOE will open the enrollment reporting window annually on August 10th, unless the date falls on a weekend. Then the window will open on the first business day thereafter.
