Enrollment System Updates

Click here to access the online registration software, SmartChoice, and complete an enrollment form for the current school year or an enrollTulsa! application for the upcoming school year (2024-25). 

Starting April 15, 2024, the district will switch to a new online registration software called Avela. On this day, guardians will be required to use this software instead of SmartChoice to create an enrollment form, submit or access an enrollTulsa! application. 

Instructions to create a parent account in Avela beginning April 15:

If you applied in the first enrollment window or have a student that has attended Tulsa Public Schools,  an account already exists for you in Avela using the phone number/email we have on file for you. Please access Avela via the link below. To access your account and the student(s) linked to your account, you will need to use the “Log in with phone” function to enter the phone number you provided when you applied in the first window, or the phone number we have on file for you, and enter the code sent to your phone into the webpage prompt. 

If you don’t have a student that has attended Tulsa Public Schools and/or you have not applied yet to enroll, create an account and get started.

Second EnrollTulsa! Window

The Second EnrollTulsa! Window for the 2024-25 school year will open at 1 a.m. April 15 and close midnight the last day of May. Waiting lists will close at midnight June 30, 2024. Schools will no longer admit students from the waitlists after this date. Applications and waiting lists for district-authorized charter schools remain active throughout the school year.  

The Second EnrollTulsa! Window offers seats on a first-come, first-served basis. This window is for families who missed the first window, and for those who took part in the first window but want to re-explore their options. 

To participate, families submit one application per student on the Enrollment Registration website, on which they rank their top schools in order of preference, up to a limit of 2. 

Waiting List Information

To see your waiting list positions, log in to your Enrollment Registration account.

You can not be offered a seat to more than one school at a time.
Once offered a seat, all lower ranked school choices will be auto-declined. 

Here are some specific examples of how the waiting list functions:

  • If placed to your first choice, your applications for all other choices will be auto declined.

  • If you are waitlisted to your first choice, and placed to your second choice, you remain on the waiting list for your first choice until the Second EnrollTulsa! Window is closed, but all lower ranked waiting list choices would be auto declined.

The Second EnrollTulsa! Window closes on the last day of May. Waiting lists will close at midnight June 30th, 2024. Schools will no longer admit students from the waitlists after this date. Applications and waiting lists for Charter schools remain active throughout the school year.

One-Transfer Policy

The School Board Policy Manual, page 118, limits students to one in-district transfer for each grade range: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12.

An in-district transfer is when a student attends a school that is not their neighborhood school.

Students are guaranteed a seat at their neighborhood school. This does not count as their transfer. Attending a Charter school does not count as a transfer.

If your student attends a school that is not their home school, this will count as the student’s one transfer until they reach the next transfer grade range. Until then, the student can attend either their neighborhood school or the school they are currently on a transfer at. 

Lottery Preferences

The electronic matching system prioritizes students based on preferences when determining who gets assigned a seat. A preference is assigned to an applicant who meets certain criteria at a particular school. Those assigned to a preference will get a higher priority when seats are assigned. For example, an applicant with a sibling preference at a particular school will be assigned a seat to that school before an applicant with no preference. Not all schools offer the same preferences or rank them in the same order. To see a list of preferences and their definitions, click here. To see what preferences apply to each school, click here.

Questions about Magnet school enrollment

transferring from another district

With the enactment of Senate Bill 783 (2021), the Legislature made comprehensive reforms to Oklahoma’s school transfer laws, namely revising the requirements for accepting and denying student transfers and requiring school districts to set and list enrollment capacities on their websites. 

A parent or guardian may request a transfer at any time of the school year.

To request a transfer, simply complete the Oklahoma Student Open Transfer Application on the State Department of Education website. Individuals without access to the internet may obtain the form from the local school district of residency or print it here.

A student may only complete two out-of-district transfers per school year. This limit does not include re-enrolling in your district of residence. 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.

A student may only complete one transfer to a statewide virtual charter school per school year. Any subsequent transfer to any other statewide virtual charter school within the same year requires the concurrence of both the resident school district and the receiving virtual charter school.

A student may be granted a one-year transfer and may continue to attend the school each school year with the approval of the receiving district. At the end of each school year, a school district may deny continued transfer of the student for discipline or attendance as described below.

Transfers may be denied by the receiving district for any of the following reasons:

a. The desired grade level at the school site has exceeded its enrollment capacity;

b. There are incidents of student discipline for reason(s) outlined in 70 O.S. § 24-101.3; and/or

c. The student has a history of absences, which is defined as ten or more unexcused absences in one semester 70 O.S. § 8-101.2 (B)(2).

Lack of capacity is an allowable reason for denying an initial transfer.  Transfers must be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Special consideration is distinct for the following student groups:

a. Students with disabilities: Prior to 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.

b. 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.

c. Students of 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.

d. 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 transfer in a given school year and are not subject to the two-transfer limit.

After a school district denies a transfer, the parent or legal guardian of the student has 10 days to appeal the denial to the local board of education. If the school district board of education upholds the denial of the transfer, the parent or legal guardian may appeal the denial to the state Board of Education within 10 days of receiving notice of the local board’s decision.
