Other Forms and Tools
OKCPS accepts transfer requests in the Spring to help families and the district to plan for the coming year. All transfer requests received during the transfer window will be considered in priorities listed in OKCPS Board Policy F-04.
- Student transfers are at the district level
- Submit one application per student
- Transfer space availability is determined after needs of resident school students are established
- Student current attendance and behavior are evaluated for transfer consideration.
- For students not currently attending OKCPS, upload student attendance and behavior records from this year
- A randomized lottery is used when the number of requests exceed spaces available
- Families will be notified of transfer decisions by May 15
