Student Transfer Policy

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Skiatook Public Schools. We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible. 

  • Skiatook Public Schools makes decisions about student transfers in accordance with district policy and state law. You can download our comprehensive district policy above; however, we are providing the following information for your convenience.  

  • The state Department of Education requires that the following form be completed to apply for a transfer.  Please follow this link for more information on this form, and to obtain a copy.  The form is hosted by the State Department of Education

  • Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit our Education Service Center located at 355 S. Osage. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at that location.

  • Decisions about transfers for the 2023-2024 school year will be made no later than the Friday of the first week of school. We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer. 

  • Mid-year transfer requests will be considered within 5 days of the district receiving the application. 

  • New transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who attended the district on a transfer during the 2022-2023 school year will be automatically accepted pending approval from the district. The law also gives preference to children of active-duty military personnel.

  • To accept a transfer, enrollment in the grade the parent requests must be under the district-established capacity. The district’s capacity and vacancy numbers for each grade and school can be found below.

  • Transfers may be denied based on capacity, attendance and discipline issues.

  • Transfers for siblings must be considered separately.

  • If the grade a student requests is over capacity, he/she will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list.

  • Transfer students must abide by eligibility requirements established by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA) for OSSAA-sanctioned activities.

  • For information about the appeal process please refer to our district transfer policy. 

  • If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact the Enrollment Center at 918-396-1792 ext. 1101.
