[+] About magnet schools transfers

Tulsa Public Schools has a long tradition of magnet schools. Students are required to complete an application process to be considered for acceptance into a magnet school or program. Admissions to the two types of magnet programs are as follows:

Lottery Magnets: Students are selected based on a random drawing from each geographic quadrant of the city to fill available spaces.
The lottery schools include:

  • Elementary schools: Dual Language Program, Eisenhower International School, Mayo Demonstration School and Zarrow International School
  • Middle/junior high schools: Monroe Demonstration School, Thoreau Demonstration Academy, Will Rogers College Junior High School
  • High schools: Will Rogers College High

Criteria-Based Magnets: Students are selected on the basis of grades, test scores, attendance, and teacher recommendation.
Criteria-based magnet schools include: Carver and Edison middle schools, Booker T. Washington High School and Edison Preparatory High School and Tulsa Engineering Academy at Memorial High School.

Our magnet schools provide opportunities for your child to focus on his or her special interests while receiving a solid foundation in traditional academic areas.

Some magnet schools have a competitive entrance process requiring an entrance examination, interview, or audition. Other magnet schools use a lottery system. Most magnet schools concentrate on a particular discipline or area of study such as:

  • International Baccalaureate
  • Micro Society
  • Language Immersion

After I have completed the online application process, is there another step to complete the process?
Yes, you must attach the appropriate documentation electronically or hand-deliver them to the Enrollment Center no later than five school days after you submit the application. In the event that you have an emergency that prevents you from meeting the 5-day deadline for uploading the documents, please contact Jill Blackwelder at 918-746-6138 or blackji@tulsaschools.org for an extension.

No, you can upload your documents as you are completing the application.
What happens if I forget to attach documents to my child's application?
Bring the documents to the Enrollment Center to upload, but note that we cannot upload them for you unless you have already submitted your application. Applications that are not submitted with the required documents by the deadline are not eligible to participate in the magnet process.
I forgot my password and I can't get into my dashboard. What can I do?
Call 918-746-6138 or email blackji@tulsaschools.org to have your password reset.
My account has been disabled because I've attempted to login too many times. Should I set up another account?
No. You can contact the Transfer Office at 918-746-6138 to reset your password.
My student is enrolled in Tulsa Public Schools or has been at one time. I do not know my child's student ID number. How can I get that number to use to complete the application?
There are three ways to get your student's ID number:
  1. ask your child to tell you his/her lunch number,
  2. call the transfer office at 918-746-6138 or
  3. email Jill Blackwelder at blackji@tulsaschools.org to get the number.
My child has never been enrolled in or attended Tulsa Public Schools. Do I need to enroll my child before I can submit an application for a magnet transfer?
No. If your child is selected to attend a magnet school, you will be contacted to complete the enrollment form.
Once I've submitted the application electronically, how will I know that the submission is successful?
Once the application is completed online, you will receive a generated message based on the email address you provided that says your application had been submitted.
I received an email telling me my application is eligible. What does that mean?
In most cases it means that we are missing required documents or we can't open attached documents. Please go to your SmartChoice Dashboard to find more information regarding the steps needed to make the application eligible. If your student is an out-of- district applicant, the application will show as "ineligible," but it will be handled according to the process for out-of-district applicants described below.
I did not attach my documents when I submitted the application; now my application is showing as ineligible. What do I do now?
You will need to bring your documents to the Enrollment Center so we can attach them. At that time we will change the application status to eligible for the magnet process. Make sure you bring the documents to the Enrollment Center before 3:00 pm on January 20, 2017 in order to make the 4 p.m. deadline.

 

The Process of Magnet School Admissions

How are students admitted to a magnet school? Is it a first-come, first serve process?
In general, criteria-based magnet schools have minimum eligibility standards and admit qualified applicants based upon their performance on a list of selection criteria, and in some cases, the quadrant of the city they live in as well. Lottery-based schools generally admit students based upon a random lottery-selection drawing by geographic quadrant. Please refer to the magnet school instructions on this webpage for the details. There the admission process and special conditions for each school are described. Also note that each principal is able to select five percent of the entering class using his or her discretion from the pool of qualified applicants who were not admitted through the standard admission process. Applicants admitted through the principal discretion process must meet the same eligibility criteria as students admitted through the standard process.
Which schools are "magnet schools" for purposes of this application process?
Magnet Schools by Type
Criteria-Based Magnets Lottery-Based Magnets
Carver Middle (6-8)
Edison Middle Magnet Program (6-8)
Booker T. Washington High (9-12)
Edison High Magnet Program (9-12)
Memorial High's Engineering Academy (9-12)
Dual Language Immersion Elementary (K-5)
Eisenhower Immersion Elementary (K-5)
Mayo Elementary Demonstration Academy (PK-5)
Zarrow Immersion Elementary (K-5)
Monroe Middle Demonstration Academy (6-8)
Thoreau Middle Demonstration Academy (6-8)
Rogers College Junior High (7-8)
Rogers College High (9-12)
What district regulation and policy apply to the application process?
Please refer to policy 2206 and regulation 2206-R2. Both of these documents are found online within the district's policy manual.
Will I be able to apply for more than one magnet program?
All elementary magnet schools are lottery-based magnet schools; therefore, parents of elementary students may submit just one application. Parents of secondary students may submit two applications, but may apply for only one criteria-based school and one lottery-based school. Secondary students will rank their choices.
Can I change my first-choice selection even though my application has already been submitted?
Yes, you can change your priority selections on your SmartChoice dashboard. Changes to an application cannot be made after the selection process has been completed for any program.
If I attend Rogers Junior High or Edison Middle School magnet program, do I still need to apply to the high school-level magnet school?
Yes. Students wishing to attend these high schools must meet all qualification requirements and submit an application to the high school by the deadline.
My child is applying to a criteria-based magnet school. What if I can't get the teacher recommendation form to the Enrollment Center in five school days?
We know it may take schools several days to fill out the teacher recommendation form. As long as the teacher recommendation is sealed and delivered to the transfer office in the Enrollment Center by 4 p.m. on January 20, 2017, we will accept it.
I lost the teacher recommendation form the school gave me. What can I do?
You should contact the school to see if they will complete another form for you. As noted above, all required documents must be submitted by the deadline. Your criteria-based application will not be eligible for processing without timely submission of the teacher recommendation form.
I want to apply for my child to attend one of the elementary magnets, but I don't want to take a tour of the school. What should I do?
Taking a tour of the elementary school you want to apply to is part of the process. Your application will not be eligible if you do not turn in a signed tour form. Please contact Jill Blackwelder at 918-746-6138 or blackji@tulsaschools.org to discuss any extenuating circumstances that make attending the tour unfeasible.
When will parents be notified if they are selected to participate in a program?
Parents of all magnet applicants will receive a letter informing them of their student's admission status. Student ID numbers of those accepted into a criteria-based magnet program will also be posted on the TPS website approximately two weeks after the selection committee meets.
I have received notice that my student has been selected to attend a specific magnet program/ school. Is there anything else I need to do?
Yes. We typically have a list of students on the waiting list for admission. Therefore, you must accept your seat at the program within the given time frame. Your admission letter and the TPS website will provide more detail. If you do not accept your seat by the deadline, the seat will be filled from the waiting lists.
What if my child is not selected in the initial lottery or criteria-based selection process?
If your child meets the relevant qualification requirements, his or her name will be placed on a waiting list. For the lottery-based schools, the placement of the name depends on the order your child's name was drawn. For criteria-based schools, the order of the waiting list is driven by the students' performance on the selection criteria. As vacancies become available, we will offer seats to the students on the waiting based upon their order on the list.

 

Out-of-District Applicants

My student would like to apply to one of the magnet programs, but we do not live within the Tulsa Public Schools boundaries. May my student apply to a magnet program?
Yes, an out-of-district student may apply, but there are important limitations. In particular, out-of-district applicants are admitted only through the "5% principal discretion" route described above. This means that out-of-district applicants may not participate in the magnet school's standard lottery or admission selection process. Instead, out-of-district applicants may be admitted only if the principal has enough seats remaining from the small number of seats reserved for the principal to fill at his or her discretion. Further, out-of-district applicants may be admitted through the principal discretion process only if they meet the minimum qualification criteria and only after the principal has used the discretionary slots to admit any remaining qualified (in-district or out-of-district) applicants who are the dependents of Tulsa Public Schools employees. Qualified out-of-district students not admitted through the principal discretion process will be placed at the end of the school's waiting list after any qualified in-district students. If you are applying to an elementary magnet, please note that the out-of-district admission limitations apply to out-of-district applicants even if the applicant has an older sibling currently attending the school.
I work for TPS but live out of district. My student would like to apply to one of the magnet programs offered by TPS. Do the same out-of-district limitations apply?
As noted above, out-of-district applicants may be admitted, but special limitations apply. They must meet all qualification requirements and may be admitted solely through the principal's discretion process. Qualified out-of-district applicants who are dependents of a TPS employee will have preference in the principal selection process over other qualified out-of-district applicants.
We live out of district and neither parent is a TPS employee, but my student attends a school that has progressive (preferential) enrollment to the next school—for example, a current student Dual Language Immersion /Eisenhower/Mayo/ Zarrow applying to Thoreau, or a Carver student applying to Booker T. Washington. Do the out-of-district limitations still prohibit us from being admitted?
There is a grandfathering provision regarding the out-of-district limitations for students currently attending the last year of a magnet school that has progressive enrollment to the next magnet school. Specifically, this year only, an out-of-district applicant will not be subject to the out-of-district limitations if the applicant meets the minimum eligibility requirements and is currently enrolled in the last year of the magnet school that has progressive enrollment to the school they are applying to—for example, if the applicant is currently an out-of-district fifth grader at Zarrow applying for admission to Thoreau Middle School, or an eighth grader at Carver applying to Booker T. Washington High School. Again, the grandfathering provision only applies for applications submitted this year for 2017-2018 enrollment.
We live out of district. We are not employed by Tulsa Public Schools. We have two children, including one who currently attends the elementary magnet school the younger child wishes to attend with him next year. May our younger student attend this magnet school through a "sibling preference?"
No. The out-of-district limitations described above still apply and are not avoided by the sibling preference found in our elementary magnet schools. Admission to the school will depend on whether there are available slots after all qualified in-district students are admitted.
We lived in the district when we made application to the magnet schools, but at the time of the admission process, we had moved out of the district. Will my child's application still be considered?
We determine whether the student is an in-district applicant by their status at the time of the admission process. Consequently, the student's application will be subject to the out-of-district limitations above.

The instructional model focuses on creating an environment where children feel at home. They will learn in a community setting that will assist in developing compassionate citizens. This will help to foster leadership that serves both students and their future communities. Each day will begin by providing a small group community that will meet for 20 minutes at the beginning of the day and will end the day with 10 minutes for a time of Agenda Reflection.

Booker T. Washington is a world class high school in the heart of America. It is the top high school in the state of Oklahoma, according to Newsweek magazine’s challenge index. Founded in 1913 to serve the citizens of the African-American community, Washington was chosen in 1973 to be the vehicle for Tulsa’s school desegregation program. When Washington was established as a magnet school every effort was made to find students who would profit, achieve, and grow within the program. The school serves students from every racial, ethnic, religious, and socio-economic group in Tulsa. Washington continues to thrive based on the twin ideals of promoting excellence and acceptance of diversity. This experience has enhanced our institution to be one of the most successful secondary schools in the United States. Our racially balanced student body boasts championship basketball, football, and soccer teams, a nationally ranked academic bowl team, physics team, and forensics team.

Washington is at the forefront of academic trends. Washington was the first Tulsa Public High School to offer Advanced Placement courses and is one of only two high schools in Oklahoma to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma. With the addition of the International Baccalaureate Diploma, the program today attracts students who thrive in a challenging environment. For many years, major universities and colleges, as well as technical, business, art and music academies have actively recruited Booker T. Washington students. The 2003-2004 school year marked the 90th anniversary of Washington and the dedication of a new school building. The dedication of the new building unites our past and present traditions with our bright prospect for the future as a symbol of what public education can do for our youth.
