Student Transfers



Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Atoka Public Schools.

Atoka 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:

  • Transfers for the current school year may be filled out at any time through May 2022.


  • 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 Application Process 

  1. Complete the Oklahoma State Department of Education Transfer Form (linked below) 

  2. Submit the Transfer form to the site principle according to the grade the student is in. 

  3. School will contact you regarding acceptance or denial of transfer. 

Transfer Acceptance or Denial

  • New transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who attended the district on a transfer during the 2021-22 school year will be automatically accepted pending approval from the district. The law also gives preference to children of active-duty military personnel and the children of district 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.


School Year 2022-2023 Transfer Window

Opens April 1, 2022

  • Transfer applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available online or at our Central Office location beginning April 1, 2022.

  • Decisions about transfers for the 2022-2023 school year will be made on an ongoing basis throughout the school year. 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. Confirmation on approvals may take up to a week.
