Transfer Availablity Data

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our student transfer policy. We appreciate your interest in Byng.  We do our best to welcome additional students to our district whenever it is possible.

Byng 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 their form be completed to apply for a transfer.  You can access that form on this webpage.  Parents who need access to technology to print or complete the form can visit any school site or the superintendent’s office. Paper copies of the form can also be picked up and returned at each site.
  • We will begin accepting transfer applications for the 2022-2023 school year on February 1, 2022.  Decisions about transfers for the 2022-2023 school year will be made in August.  We will contact parents directly about the approval status of their child’s transfer. 
  • Mid-year transfer requests, in most cases, will be considered within 5 days of the district receiving the application.  However, it may take longer to consider the transfer request when returning from breaks, especially Christmas Break.
  • 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.
  • Transfer decisions may be appealed by following the appeal process described in Byng Policy FE.

The application is located under the transfer availability chart, which shows district capacity.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, please contact Shawna Breechen, Registrar, at 580-310-6771.
