Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our out of district student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Ardmore City Schools. We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.
Ardmore City 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 their student transfer form be completed to apply for a transfer. The link to the form is at the bottom of the page. Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit the Enrollment Center in the Administration Center, 611 Veterans Blvd. Normal hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at the Enrollment Center.
Decisions about transfers for the 2022-2023 school year will be made by August 1. We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer.
Mid-year transfer requests will be considered within seven days of the district receiving the application, if records are received from the receiving district within that time frame.
New transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who already attend the district on an open transfer 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. The appeal process is outlined on page three in the Student Transfer policy.
If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact Chelsey Slatten, District Registrar. Her phone number is 580.221.3001 Ext 1505 and her email address is email@example.com.
