Student Transfer Policy and Capacity
Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Bristow Public Schools, where we believe in “Linking Learning to Life.” We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.
Bristow 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
- Parents can access, complete, and submit via email, the Student Transfer Application above to email@example.com Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit the Bristow Public Library, 111 W 7th Ave, Bristow, OK 74010. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up, completed, and submitted to the Administration Building, 420 N Main St, Bristow, OK 74010.
- Decisions about transfers for the next school year will be made by July 15. We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer.
- Mid-year transfer requests will be considered within 3 business days pending receipt of records from the sending district.
- 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 through the link 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 by submitting an appeal in writing to the Board of Education within 10 days of the denial of transfer.
