I am needing my child’s STN to request a transfer to another district outside of OKCPS, who can I contact?

What can I do if my transfer request is denied or my transfer is revoked?

If the transfer request is denied or revoked, you have a right to appeal the decision by completing the online Oklahoma City Public Schools Appeal Form.

Can I request a transfer to an in-person OKCPS school if I am enrolled in e3 (Online Learning)?

No, since the OKCPS Online Learning Program is a semester-long commitment you must be attending in person to request a transfer to another school. You may however request a transfer at the end of the winter semester to start attending in person in the Spring, and you may request a transfer for the upcoming school year during the spring transfer window (February 15 - April 15). 

I moved during the middle of the school year, can my child still attend the same school?

Board policy and state law allow a family that has moved after the first day of school to continue at the same school for the duration of the school year. If a family wishes to continue beyond the current school year, they will need to request a transfer during the Spring Transfer Window.

What are my next steps if I have just moved into the Oklahoma City Public Schools district, or have moved to a new address within the district?

How can I apply to an application school?

Our application schools handle their own applications. You will need to contact them directly to apply. When students are approved to attend application schools, our office transfers them to the correct schools.
