Transfer Information

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Miami Public Schools, where we desire for all students to be college, career, and citizen ready! We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible. Miami 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 our Administrative Services Office at 2116 Rockdale Blvd. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at this location.

  • The district will begin accepting transfer applications for the 2022-23 school year on May 1, 2022. A decision about transfer requests will be sent to applicants by US mail within 30 days of the district receiving their application.

  • 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 2021-22 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 appeals process noted in our policy below.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact Lisa Namestka, Enrollment Clerk at 918-542-8455 (Ext. 1).
