TPS can approve or deny an open transfer. The sending school cannot deny this type of transfer. This type of transfer is good for more than one year and does not have to be renewed.
- EMERGENCY transfer: This transfer is used during a school year for reasons established by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. The student must fill out the transfer request with Tulsa Public Schools. The sending school can deny approval of an emergency transfer. These are good for one year only.

Tulsa Public Schools gives students and parent opportunities to choose industry and language-specific magnet schools. These schools feature a variety of environments designed to cater to students' interests and strengths.
Applications to the following four schools are accepted all year round.
Other Magnet Schools:
Q: What’s the difference between a Magnet School and a Magnet Program?
A: A magnet school provides a specialized learning environment for
students who have strengths and interests in a particular discipline or career.
Students follow an individualized curriculum that prepares them for a career or
postsecondary options while giving them hands-on learning opportunities in
subjects that attract and engage their interests.
Magnet programs operate just like magnet schools, but are specialized
programs within a school. Only students who elect to enroll in the magnet
component are immersed in the program. Students are accepted to most TPS magnet
programs based upon specific criteria.
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 three types of magnet programs are as follows:
Interest Magnets: Student interest is the determining factor for admission to our four high schools offering a wide variety of specific programs.
Interest magnet high schools are Central, Hale, McLain and Webster High Schools.
Lottery Magnets: Students are selected based on a random drawing from each geographic quadrant of the city to fill available spaces.
The lottery schools are:
- 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
Academic Magnets: Students are selected on the basis of grades, test scores, attendance, and teacher recommendation.
Academic 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
- Fine and Performing Arts
- Restaurant, Lodging and Health Management
- Scientific & Technological Utilization and
- Broadcasting and Digital Media.
