AGE REQUIREMENTS TO ENROLL IN PUBLIC SCHOOL:
On or before September 1st of the school year the child is enrolling for, the student must be age 4 to enroll in PK, age 5 to enroll in K, and may be ages 6-21 to enroll in grades 1-12.
IN ADDITION TO THE ENROLLMENT FORMS, PARENTS OR GUARDIANS MUST PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING:
1. BIRTH VERIFICATION
Parents/guardians of children new to the district must provide an official copy of the birth certificate for school files. Although an official birth certificate is preferred, in the absence of a birth certificate, the principal may accept other documentation that shows the child’s name and date of birth such as:
- An attending physician’s certificate
- Permanent school records
- Family bills (shows student’s date of birth)
- Last year’s attendance register or other official scholastic record
- Baptismal certificate
- Passport Life Insurance policy
The principal may also allow the parent/guardian a reasonable length of time to obtain proof of birth (parent contacts the department of health from the student’s birth city). In such a case, the principal will be responsible for dismissing the student at the end of the grace period unless proof of birth is presented. If the principal denies enrollment due to the absence of proof of birth, the parent may appeal to the site director.
2. IMMUNIZATION RECORDS
Requirements are listed on the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s website. Contact your regular doctor or the OK State Department of Health for locations to obtain immunizations your child may still need.
3. 2 PROOFS OF RESIDENCY
May include the following, but not limited to:
- Proof of payment of local personal income or property taxes
- Title to residential property in the district, or a valid unexpired lease agreement, or current receipts for payment of rent on a district residence where the student lives
- Proof of current utilities (gas, water, or electric bills)
- A valid, unexpired driver’s license or motor vehicle registration
- voter registration
4. PHOTO ID OF PARENT
Acceptable forms of ID includes: State Issued ID, Driver’s License, Matricula, or Passport. ID must have an expiration date and must be current.
Contact your school site, Student Services (405) 587-0438 or the PK-12 Office (405) 587-0049 with any enrollment issues.
5. PREVIOUS SCHOOL’S WITHDRAWAL FORM (if applicable)
When enrolling from a non-OKCPS site, please include the withdrawal form from the student’s previous school as well as a transcript to expedite proper classroom and schedule placement.
