Mid-Del Schools Transfer Policy

A transfer being requested from a parent/guardian for a student due to the parent/guardian living outside of the Midwest City-Del City Public School District’s residency boundaries.  An open transfer will be reviewed for acceptance but may be denied due to the school being over capacity, a student’s past discipline and/or a student’s attendance history. The open transfer application can be found here:

Student Transfer Application Form

With the enactment of Senate Bill 783 (2021), the Oklahoma Legislature made comprehensive reforms to Oklahoma’s school transfer laws, namely revising the requirements for accepting and denying student transfers (to expand transfers between public schools) and requiring school districts to set and list enrollment capacities on their websites. Capacity data is determined for each grade level and site within the school district.

The District will begin accepting applications for the following school year starting July 1st of that school year. The District will review the applications in the order they are submitted. Applications denied due to capacity will not be placed on a wait list.  Parents/legal guardians that have been denied due to lack of capacity may re-apply at any time for additional consideration.

If a transfer request is denied by the District, the parent/guardian of the student may appeal the denial to District’s Board in writing within ten (10) days of the notification of the denial as provided for by law and regulation. The District’s Board will consider the appeal at its next regularly scheduled board meeting so long as the appeal is received prior to the statutory deadline for posting the Board agenda. The appeal review process will be submitted to the Board and will take place in executive session in order to protect student privacy.  The vote to uphold or reject the student’s transfer denial will be held in open session.

If the Board upholds the denial, the parent may appeal the denial to the State Board of Education within ten (10) days of the notification of the Board’s decision. 

Transfer students must abide by eligibility requirements established by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association (OSSAA) for OSSAA-sanctioned activities.

The capacity of each school will be recalculated quarterly.  The Student Accounting office will verify the actual capacity in the school and grade at the time of transfer request. The latest capacity numbers may be found by clicking here

Student Intra-District Transfer Information

An intra-district transfer being requested from a parent/guardian for a student who already lives within the Midwest City-Del City Public School District boundaries but is requesting to apply for the student to attend a different school outside the parent/guardian’s attendance zone.  An intra-district transfer will be reviewed for acceptance but may be denied due to the school being over capacity, a student’s past discipline and/or a student’s attendance history.

Intra-district transfer requests are not guarantees. State laws now limit class sizes. Enrollment at school sites may attain maximum class size from students in the regular attendance area. In this situation, new requests for transfers cannot be accepted. All new applications will be approved by the receiving school, based upon available space and proof of residence. *Proof (by documentation) of residence must be provided by parent/guardian and verified by the sending school principal before approval. If the transfer is completed in previous school year for pre-enrollment purposes, proof of residence must be provided to the receiving school at the time of enrollment.

Final approval of all new intra-district transfer requests will not be given until after Labor Day. If the enrollment at a school site exceeds maximum class size by Labor Day, intra-district transfers may be rescinded. Further, parents and students should be aware that this transfer may be revoked at any time at the sole discretion of the receiving site principal.

As the transportation route must be established on the basis of school site attendance areas and cannot be changed to accommodate transfers between the various school sites, the parent will assume full responsibility for the transportation of the above named child during the supervised day.

As this school district operates under the rules of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association, approval of an intra-district transfer does not assure athletic eligibility at the receiving site. A student is eligible in the area where his/her parents reside. Be advised that the period of ineligibility for those who have previously established eligibility in generally one semester. You should contact your athletic director or principal about eligibility.
