Helpful tips to know before you begin the online registration process:

All new students (other than PK) entering Indianola Community School District must provide the proper documentation to establish residency . The documents provided must always state the student’s current physical address. A post office box is not an acceptable address for the purpose of determining residency. If you do not know whether your residence is within the Indianola Community School District, contact the Student Information Management Analyst at 515.961.9500 or go to the Warren County Assessor site.  You must provide proof of residency in order to enroll your child. During the online registration process, you will need to submit a copy of one of the following documents listing custodial parents’ current address:

You must complete the online registration and submit all of the documents above before we can enroll your child(ren) in the Indianola Community School District.  If you have the documentation listed above and are ready to begin the online registration process for the 2018-2019 school year, please contact Ryan Whitesitt for the registration link.
