Iroquois Community School Enrollment

ICS is a K-8, balanced-calendar (also known as year-round) school of choice, which serves all of District 62.

Enrollment is based on space availability within class size limitations. Returning students and those who have siblings currently in the school are given first priority.

New or transfer students are required to complete a prospective student application which can be obtained in the school office or online at the Iroquois website. This application should be filled out for each student wishing to enroll and returned to the school office during the open enrollment period. This enrollment period is from January to May each school year.

Due to the large volume of requests for admission, applications will need to be filled out each year. We will no longer hold over applications from year to year.

Once the number of grade level openings has been determined at the end of May, the names of all applicants for each grade level are entered into a lottery. A representative of the District Superintendent’s office draws the names of applicants until the grade level is full.

Applicants selected through the lottery process will be notified by telephone. Email notifications will be sent to those students whose names were not drawn. Should openings occur during the summer, or within the first two weeks of the school year, another lottery is held and the principal will notify the applicants whose names are drawn by phone.

Iroquois Community School Enrollment Policy

  • Iroquois Community School (ICS) is a school of choice that CCSD 62 offers for those families interested in an alternative school calendar.
  • While ICS offers many comprehensive services and supports, it does not incorporate extensive programs and services for those students with more significant educational needs. The district will determine whether or not a student's needs can be met at ICS and enrollment may be denied on this basis.
  • Further, should it become evident after a student has been allowed enrollment to ICS that his/her needs cannot be appropriately met, the district reserves the right to terminate enrollment at ICS and transfer the student to the appropriate school.
