Missing or stolen property if the property is reasonably suspected to have been taken from a student, a school employee, or the school during school activities

Students with disabilities: Special education transfer rules have NOT changed as a result of the new transfer law. Before the approval of the transfer of a child on an individualized education program (IEP), a joint IEP conference must be conducted between the District of residence and the receiving District. The receiving District must establish the availability of the appropriate staff and services prior to approving the transfer.
Military dependent students: A student who applies for a transfer and whose parent/guardian is an active member of the military or a member of the military reserve on active duty cannot be denied a transfer because of capacity limitations.
At least one parent of the student has a Department of Defense issued identification card; AND
At least one parent can provide evidence that he or she will be on active-duty status or active-duty orders, meaning the parent will be temporarily transferred in compliance with official orders to another location in support of combat, contingency operation or a national disaster requiring the use of orders for more than thirty (30) consecutive days.
Students of CPS teachers: A child of a parent/legal guardian employed as a “teacher” in a district may transfer into that District regardless of capacity. Under the law, the definition of teacher includes teachers, nurses, librarians, counselors and administrators who are certified employees.
Students in foster care: Any student in foster care currently placed in the home of another student enrolled in a district may transfer to said District regardless of capacity. Additionally, students in foster care many complete any number of transfers in a given school year and are not subject to the two-transfer limit.
Claremore Virtual School (CVS): A transfer application for CVS may be considered IF the student attends at least one period per day in person. No student on an open transfer can attend full-time virtual school.
Siblings: Siblings from the same family must apply separately for a transfer and will be considered if the District has capacity in the grade level requested and there is not a reason for denial as listed in item one above.
Dependent Schools: A student choosing to attend CPS from a dependent school (i.e., Justus-Tiawah) may transfer to CPS regardless of capacity.
CPS will not provide transportation.
