    Back to School Forms

    Delaware City Schools has implemented an online forms portal for parents to complete the majority of back to school forms. A summer date will be announced when the DCS form portal will open. Parents will sign into their PowerSchool Parent Account (the same account used to monitor grades) and click on E-collect forms. Please contact the Dempsey office if you have trouble accessing your parent account.
