Student Transfer Information

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Weleetka Public Schools, where we empower students to be lifelong learners and successful citizens. We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.

Weleetka Public Schools makes decisions about student transfers in accordance with district policy and state law. You can download our comprehensive district policy below; 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:  Student Transfer Application Form. Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit the Superintendent’s office at Weleetka Public Schools. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at the Superintendent’s office of Weleetka Public Schools.
  • The school district will begin accepting transfer applications for the 2022-2023 school year starting May 1st. The administration will not approve or deny transfers received for the next school year until after the July 1 capacity data is determined for each grade level and site within the school district.
  • A decision about mid-year transfer requests will be sent to applicants by US Mail within 30 days of the district receiving their application.
  • When a transfer is accepted by a district and parents are notified of the decision, they have 10 days to accept the transfer in writing.
  • New transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who attended the district on a transfer during the 2021-2022 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.
  • Transfer decisions may be appealed by the parent or legal guardian of the student within ten (10) days of notification of denial to the board of education.  The board of education shall consider the appeal at its next regularly scheduled board meeting if notice is provided prior to the statutory deadline for posting the agenda for the meeting.  The board of education shall accept an otherwise untimley appeal if a parent of a student can establish that they did not receive actual notice of the notification denying the transfer request, and the appeal was submitted within ten (10) days after the parent of the student actually received the notice.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact Chris Carter, Superintendent at (405) 786-2203.
