Student Transfers

Student Transfer Information


Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Chandler Public Schools, where our mission is to provide a safe environment that equips, educates, and empowers students on their journey toward outstanding character and success. We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.

Chandler Public Schools makes decisions about student transfers in accordance with district policy and state law. You can view our comprehensive district policy below; however, we are providing the following information for your convenience:

  • The state Department of Education requires that the following Student Transfer Online Application form be submitted to apply for a transfer: Student Transfer Online Application. (You need to complete the online application)
  • Chandler Public Schools will begin accepting transfer applications for the 2023-2024 school year on June 1, 2023. Decisions about transfers for the 2023-2024 school year will be made sometime after July 1, 2023, once capacity data has been determined for each grade level and site within the school district. We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer.
  • Mid-year transfer requests will be considered within 10 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 2022-2023 school year will be automatically accepted pending approval from the district. If your current transfer is revoked you will receive a letter from the school district stating why.
  • 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. Capacity numbers can change daily due to in-district enrollment numbers.
  • Transfers may be denied based on capacity, attendance and/or discipline issues.
  • Transfers for siblings must be considered separately.
  • If the grade a student requests is overcapacity, 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.
  • If a transfer request is denied by the administration, the parent or legal guardian of the student may appeal the denial within ten (10) days of notification of denial to the Board of Education.  The Board of Education shall consider the appeal at its next regularly scheduled board meeting if notice is provided prior to the statutory deadline for posting the agenda for the meeting. For more information on the appeal process, please review the district’s student transfer policy below.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact Jill Lambert at 405-258-1450 or by email at
