We appreciate your interest in Owasso 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. Our expectation is that equitable services be provided to all students regardless of the elementary school attended.

  • Owasso Public Schools will begin accepting intra-district transfer applications for the 2024-25 school year on July 1, 2024. Decisions about transfers for the 2024-25 school year will be made after July 4, 2024, once capacity data has been determined for each grade level and site within the school district. We will contact parents in writing about the approval status of their child’s transfer.
  • All intra-district transfer requests will be considered within 30 days of the district receiving the application. 
  • Intra-district transfers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 
  • To accept an intra-district 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.
  • Intra-district transfers may be denied based on capacity, attendance and/or discipline issues.
  • Intra-district 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.
  • If an intra-district 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 before 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 Amanda Thiessen at 918-928-4055 or
