Helpful tips to know before you begin the online registration process:
All new students 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:
Printed Verification Page from Assessor’s Web Page
Mortgage or Current Property Tax Document
Lease Agreement with Term listed
Settlement Statement or Warranty Deed from Closing on New Home
Purchase Contract with Possession/Closing Date
Current Utility Bill or Utility Deposit Receipt
The following documents are legal requirements that you will need to submit during the online registration process. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide all of these documents before your child will be enrolled in school.
Certificate of Dental Screening (Dental is for K and 9th grade ONLY)
General Physical Examination (4-year-old physical for PK & 5-year-old physical for K)
Proof of Birth (e.g., Birth Certificate)
Proof of Immunization Records
Proof of Vision Screening (Vision is for K and 3rd grade ONLY)
Sunscreen Permission Form (PK ONLY)
Authorization Form (PK ONLY)
If you are registering for the current school year, you will have the ability to pay school fees for grades K-12 and/or complete a fee waiver and free/reduced lunch application.
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 current school year, please contact Ryan Whitesitt for the registration link.
