Elementary In-District Transfer Request Window Now Open for Ponca City Public Schools


The Ponca City Public School elementary in-district transfer request window for the 2021-2022 school year opened January 4, 2021 and will close on April 30, 2021. Parents or legal guardians of elementary students requesting an in-district transfer from the student’s home attendance site to another elementary site within the district must complete and submit the Ponca City Public Schools in-district transfer application at their student’s home attendance site.

In-district transfer requests will not be granted until after the district fall enrollment of the same year the transfer is requested. Students must be registered with the PCPS by July 29, 2021 to be considered. Requests will be granted based upon availability of space and appropriate programs. In accordance with board policy, site grade levels reaching 93% capacity during fall registration will not be allowed to accept transfers during the district fall transfer meeting.

Transportation of in-district transfer students is the sole responsibility of the parent or guardian. If attendance issues occur due to transportation, the transfer may be withdrawn immediately and the student will return to their home attendance site. Site principals may deny a transfer request or withdraw a current transfer based upon the best interest of a student’s academic or social well-being.  Transfer requests after April 30, 2021 will not be considered. If families choose to move to another school attendance zone during the summer months, they must understand that they will be expected to attend the school located in that attendance zone. If you have questions about your school attendance zone, feel free to call the Ponca City Public Schools Administration Center at 580-767-8000.
