Ponca City Public Schools and PC logo

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Ponca City Public Schools where we focus on preparing our students to live and work in a global society and to embody the characteristics of the Wildcat Way.  We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.

Ponca City 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:  SDE Required Application Form for Transfer
     

    Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit the PCPS Administration Office located at 613 E. Grand in Ponca City.  Paper copies of the form can also be picked up at the same location. 

  • Receipt of transfer applications for the 2022-2023 school will begin the first Monday in March, or March 7, 2022.Decisions about transfers for the 2022-2023 school year will be made by August 1, 2022.We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer.
  • Mid-year transfer requests will be considered within 3 days of the district receiving the application.
  • 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.
  • Capacity limits will be considered for change by the Board of Education by the first day of January, April, July, and October of each year.
  • Transfer decisions may be appealed as stated in the PCPS Board of Education Policy – 7-20.
