School Enrollment Information

Where will my child go to school?

There are 17 public and 4 private schools of varying size that serve Fort Sill families. Check school web sites for more information when choosing a school district. If you have children who need before/after school care, check on the availability in your area prior to selecting housing in a school district without child care that may not meet your needs. In the areas outside Lawton, most child care does not open early enough to accommodate morning PT.

Children who live on Fort Sill attend school on post at Freedom Elementary (Pre-K-5th Grade), Central Middle School (6th-8th Grade) or Lawton High School (9th-12th Grade).  Additionally, families who live off-post but utilize CYSS before and after school care for Kindergarten-6th grade students may apply for a transfer to the on-post elementary schools. Transfers are approved on a space available basis and priority goes to single parent soldiers and dual military families. Prior to applying for a transfer, children must be registered with CYSS and enrolled in before and after school care.

What do I need to enroll my child in school?

All area schools require the student’s official birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residence (utility bill in parent’s name, rental contract, Fort Sill housing contract, etc.) within the district. Some area schools also require the student’s Social Security number. For students in 1st-12th Grades, you will also need withdrawal papers, records from previous school (or contact information so official records can be requested), copies of report cards, transcripts, test scores, etc.  For High School students, if end of course test scores are NOT listed on the transcript, be sure to request a copy of the test scores to they can be evaluated as potential substitutes for Oklahoma’s End of Instruction Tests, which are required for graduation in Oklahoma.

When do I enroll my child in school?

If you arrive during the summer, check your school’s website for enrollment information. Lawton Public Schools operates an Enrollment Center year round and most other schools have designated dates near the first day of school for new student enrollment. If you arrive during the school year, go to the LPS enrollment center (you can download and complete the enrollment packet prior to your arrival). For schools outside of Lawton or the private schools, go directly to the school.

How much time do I have to enroll my child in his/her new school?

Students who miss more than 10 school days in a semester are at risk for retention, if they cannot demonstrate subject matter competency. The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children provides for additional excused absences at the discretion of the local school district for deployment related absences. This exception generally applies to families who PCS from an overseas duty station during the school year as well.  If you know that your student will miss more than 10 days during the move, it is recommended that you visit with the receiving school to alert them to the situation.

Upon request, Oklahoma students may be allowed to earn credits for graduation in core academic areas based on demonstration of mastery through tests. Students must score 90% or higher on these tests to receive credit. This can be helpful for students who miss more than 10 days of school due to a PCS move.

We are moving to Fort Sill in April or May – does my child need to enroll in school when we arrive or can we wait until the next school year?

Unless the student took semester tests and received end of year grades and the transcript or report indicates that he/she completed the course or was promoted to the next grade, it will be necessary to complete the school year once the family arrives here. To make any other decision would put the student at risk for repeating the course or the grade. 

Keep in mind that state testing occurs in April and early May of each year. A PCS during that time will likely result in a student taking tests he/she is not academically prepared to take. This results in frustration for the student, teachers and families. Students who arrive after testing have the opportunity to take the required tests during the alternate testing window during the summer.

Pre-K Eligibility/Enrollment:

Pre-K is optional in Oklahoma, but enrollment in a Pre-K or Pre-School program is beneficial to children. Pre-K offered by a public school is free. Collaborative Pre-K programs operated at several area child care centers (including Pre-K in the Child Development Centers on Fort Sill) include before/after care for a fee, combined with free Lawton Public Schools Pre-K classes.  If your child attends one of these collaborative programs, you must pay for before/after care whether is utilized or not. In a two parent household, full time employment (or full time student status) of both parents is required for these programs. For the programs located on Fort Sill, at least one parent must be working on Fort Sill and the other must be employed full time or a full time student. Priority is given to single parent soldiers and dual military families.

Children entering Pre-K must be 4 years old before September 1 of the school year. While the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children addresses Kindergarten and First Grade entrance age, it does not address Pre-K; therefore schools are not obligated to enroll a student who does not meet the age requirement, even if he/she was in Pre-K in another state.

 There are half-day and full day Pre-K programs available at area schools. Choose a Pre-K program that best meets your child’s developmental and academic needs. Children who have been in child care or a pre-school program are generally ready for a full-day Pre-K program. Children who have not been away from home on a regular basis may be more comfortable in a half-day Pre-K Program. 

Kindergarten and First Grade Eligibility/Enrollment

Kindergarten is mandatory in Oklahoma.  Children entering Kindergarten must be 5 years of age and students entering First Grade must be 6 years of age on or before September 1 of the current school year. The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children provides the opportunity for students to be allowed to continue their enrollment at grade level in the receiving state, regardless of age, once that level is validated with an accredited school in the sending state. Keep in mind that not all private or church Pre-K and Kindergarten are accredited with their states.

While schools initially honor these placements, if a student is not on grade level with his/her peers academically or developmentally (social/emotional readiness), teachers/administrators may suggest retention or going back to the previous grade to give the student the opportunity to be successful. Please remember that when this occurs, it is not a reflection of a child’s intellect or parenting, but of the academic and social/emotional preparation the child received in the sending state.   

Middle School/High School Student Enrollment

In addition to the required documents, it is helpful to bring a copy of each course syllabus (especially for moves during the school year) to facilitate appropriate class placement. Before leaving the current school, obtain copies of all end- of -course or end of instruction test scores if they are not included on the transcript. 

High School students who are coming from a school with “Block” or “4x4” scheduling where class periods are longer and a course is completed in a semester rather than a year should make every effort to complete the course if making a mid-year move to the Lawton Fort Sill area to avoid duplication or loss of credit.

These tests are NOT tied to graduation or final course grades

According to Article VII, Section A-2 of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children, States shall accept the following alternatives to state tests required for graduation:

  • Exit or end of course exams required for graduation from the sending state (an end of course test that is averaged with other course grades does not meet the intent of the provision because it is possible to fail the test, but pass the course)
  • National norm-referenced achievement tests
  • Alternative testing in lieu of testing requirements for graduation in the receiving state
Student Transfers

Fort Sill is located in the Lawton Public School District which is made up of 17 elementary schools (including Freedom Elementary located on Fort Sill), 4 middle schools and 3 high schools. Students living on Fort Sill are in the Freedom Elementary, Central Middle School and Lawton High School transportation districts.

If a particular school district is desired, make every effort to locate housing within that district and verify that the residence is in the preferred school district prior to signing a contract by calling the County Assessor’s office.

For detailed information about student transfers, go to: http://sde.ok.gov/sde/student-transfers

Types of Transfers:

Transfers are available on a space-available basis. If the receiving school does not have space, a transfer cannot be granted. Not all schools in the Fort Sill area accept student transfers.

As a general rule, students with an IEP must attend school in the district where they reside.

Open Transfer (from one school district to another)

  • Apply between January 1 and May 31 Annually
  • Requires the approval of receiving district only

Emergency Transfer (from one school district to another)

  • Application can be made at any time during the year
  • Requires sending district to release the student and receiving district to accept the student
  • Some schools, including Lawton Public Schools, do not release students between June 1 and October 1 and the do not accept transfers between October 1 and the end of the school year

Lawton Public Schools Intra-District Transfers (between schools in the LPS district)

  • Students in grades Pre-K-5 can generally transfer from one elementary school to another as long as space is available at the requested school
  • With LPS approval, students in grades 6-12 may transfer attendance rights, but not athletic eligibility from one middle or high school to another
  • Decisions on intra-district transfers are made immediately prior to the start of a new school year

LPS Intradistrict Transfer Application

LPS Transfer Policy

Freedom Elementary

The only way to guarantee attendance at Freedom Elementary is to live on Fort Sill. Students who meet eligibility requirements and utilize CYSS before/after school care generally receive favorable consideration for an intra-district transfer as long as space is available.  For an out of district transfer, be sure to observe deadlines as listed above.

Athletic Eligibility 70 O.S. § 8-103.2:

Students who are not residents of the district are not eligible to participate in school-related sports for one year from the first day of attendance at the receiving school. However, students who transfer PRIOR TO ENTERING 9th grade are generally eligible to complete in high school without delay.

Youth Sponsorship

Sponsors for your middle school or high school teens are available either through the youth program or school. 

Army Youth Sponsorship Program

The Youth Sponsorship Club can help your teen learn about their new community and make new friends. Getting involved quickly helps children and teens fit in and feel less stress associated with their PCS move. All it takes to join the club is a visit to the school age or youth center or contact the School Liaison Officer.

Youth Sponsorship Registration

Contact your School Liaison Officer (SLO) to request a sponsor.  You can download and use the Youth Sponsorship Request form below to help your SLO pair your child with a compatible sponsor.

Special Education Information

If you have a child with special needs, we can help you find information about the resources available in your school district. We can also help you connect with your local installation’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) office.

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated community support, housing, educational, medical, and personnel services to Families with special needs. Soldiers on active duty enroll in the program when they have a Family member with a physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual disorder requiring specialized services so their needs can be considered in the military personnel assignment process.

Family members must be screened and enrolled, if eligible, when the Soldier is on assignment instructions to an OCONUS area for which command sponsorship/Family member travel is authorized, and the Soldier elects to serve the accompanied tour. This screening consists of medical records review for all Family members, and developmental screening for all children 72 months of age and younger.

Soldiers are responsible for keeping their EFMP enrollment current as exceptional Family member (EFM) conditions change or at least every three years, whichever comes first.

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) provides an all-inclusive approach for community, educational, medical, housing and personnel services for Families with special needs. An exceptional Family member may be a child or an adult with any physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disorder that limits the individual's capacity to engage in pursuits with peers or that requires:

  • Special treatment
  • Therapy
  • Education
  • Training

Home School

Home Schooling has become mainstream and widely-used. We offer resources and information to help you provide quality home-based education.

Lawton Christian Home Educators [email protected]

Oklahoma State Department of Education
Oklahoma law provides for the compulsory attendance of all school children ages 5 through 18. This law has been interpreted by the Attorney General to allow for the education of a child in the home by a parent/guardian with the following guidelines for home instruction. These recommendations are not required by law; however, following these suggestions would allow a parent to prove they are providing a quality education.
1.    Notify the principal of the school district the child resides in and inform them that you plan to home school your child.  Some schools may have you sign a form that releases them from the responsibility of educating the student also stating that you are assuming full responsibility for the education of your child.
2.    It is important to know the Attorney General has ruled that while home instruction does not require a certified teacher, the instruction provided must be supplied in good faith and must be equivalent to the education provided by the state.
3.    Home instruction should follow compulsory school age laws requiring children, ages 5 - 18, to be enrolled in school.
4.    Home school setting should maintain compulsory school attendance as well.  This would be the equivalent of 180 days per each calendar year and six clock hours or 360 minutes per day, as appropriate for child’s age.   It does seem clear that a point of the Attorney General’s opinion is that homeschooling must not be used as a maneuver to bypass truancy.
5.    There is no required state approved curriculum, but a well-defined curriculum or design for learning should be implemented.  Required school subjects under Oklahoma law include: reading, writing, math, science, citizenship, US constitution, health, safety, physical education, and conservation.
6.    Academic progress must be established and maintained for the child.
7.    For college-bound students, refer to the Oklahoma State Board of Education Regulations for Graduation listed on our website or required courses at the college of your choice.
8.    The Attorney General has further ruled that a board of education is not required to furnish textbooks, resources, or other materials to home schooled students.   However, if the child qualifies for, or is determined to be eligible as a handicapped student, special education services will be made available.
9.    Because home schools are not accredited by the State Board of Education, a student will be required to take a standardized achievement test if he/she re-enters the public school system. Results of tests may be used to determine grade placement and/or credit for the student. All examinations will be administered by the receiving school and results, as well as copies of the exam given, will be kept on file for one year. Upon re-entry into a public school, the parent/guardian must provide documentation of compliance with the above requirements. This documentation will determine if the equivalent instruction was provided during home schooling.
10.    Homeschools are not regulated and Oklahoma law does not require parents to register with or seek approval from state or local officials, conduct state testing with their students, or permit public school officials to visit or inspect homes.

Concurrent Enrollment

Earn College Credit while still in High School

High school Juniors and Seniors (or home schooled students age 16/17) who meet minimum eligibility requirements are eligible for concurrent enrollment in college courses while still in High School (up to 6 hours per semester). All public higher education institutions offer tuition waiver scholarships for Seniors.  Some (Including Cameron University) also offer tuition waiver scholarships for Juniors as well, which means that a student could receive up to 36 hours tuition free.

Area School Counselors have detailed information and must approve concurrent enrollment.

Eligibility begins the summer after 10th grade, with the required GPA and ACT/SAT score.

Students are eligible for a tuition waiver of up to 6 hours per semester, however the student is still required to pay the fees (generally $350-$400 for 6 hours)

Points to remember:

  • A concurrently enrolled high school student can take no more than the equivalent of 19 colllege semester hours. Each high school course counts as 3 hours in the formula so without an exception to policy, a student could generally be enrolled in no more than 4 high school courses and 6 college hours per semester
  • Concurrent courses taken during the regular school day are posted to the high school transcript and averaged with high school grades to determine final GPA and rank in class. Evening classes are not generally included in the high school GPA.
  • Remedial (non-credit) courses to make up for deficiencies are not eligible for concurrent enrollment
  • Minimum ACT subtest scores are required for enrollment in certain classes:
    • 19 ACT in English to take an English Class
    • 19 ACT in mathematics to take a mathematics (Some colleges/universities also require a placement test for enrollment in College Algebra)
    • 19 ACT in science to take a science class (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.)
    • 19 ACT in reading to take history, social studies, psychology, speech, etc.

Transition Support

We understand that military transitions for children include much more than school plans and enrollment. We have a number of resources to help make your move as easy as possible for the kids, including:

Military Kids Connectprovides online age-appropriate resources to help parents, teachers and children cope with the unique challenges of military life.

The Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children (MIC3) addresses key transition issues military Families experience, including enrollment, placement, attendance, eligibility and graduation. All fifty states have signed the compact and are in varying stages of implementation and/or compliance. The compact applies to children of Active Duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members on active duty orders and members or veterans who are medically discharged or retired within past year. Read more. 

School Transition Information: School Liaison Officers are located on each installation to assist military Families with school transition and other education-related issues.  Go to Army OneSource for more information.

Military Youth on the Move the Department of Defense designed Military Youth on the Move as one-stop shop for parents and students with moves and deployment.

Academic and Behavioral Support

We can help you find information and resources for academic and behavioral support, including:

Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families makes live tutors available online 24/7 to help with more than forty core subjects and standardized test preparation.  

Homework Support: Army Child & Youth Services provides homework labs in before/after school programs for elementary students at the School Age Center, and for middle and high school students at the Youth Center. 

Support/Resilience Programs:  School Support Services include information about other programs you can use for support and resilience-related issues.

In State Tuition for Military Dependents

In-State Tuition Public colleges and universities typically offer two tuition rates: one for state residents and another – much higher – for students from outside the state. In the past, this system put military families at a disadvantage. States set their own guidelines for in-state tuition eligibility, but most require that students or their families live, own property and/or pay taxes in that state. Military families, who move frequently and often are legal residents of a state other than the one in which they are stationed, could have a difficult time meeting that standard. Luckily, the playing field was leveled for military families in 2009. That year, the Higher Education Opportunity Act was passed, requiring public colleges and universities to grant in-state tuition status to dependent children of service members in the state where they reside or are permanently stationed. Once a dependent child is enrolled and paying in-state tuition, they will continue to pay the in-state tuition rate as long as they remain continuously enrolled at the institution, even if the service member is reassigned outside the state. This law has been a tremendous help to military families, who otherwise might struggle to afford college for their children. However, it’s important to know that the law only applies to children of service members on active duty for a period of more than 30 days. It does not apply to the children of retirees or veterans. - See more at: http://www.militaryfamily.org/kids-operation-purple/#sthash.yIYTjclO.dpuf

 

Post-9/11 GI Bill

One of the most valuable education benefits available for military families is the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The GI Bill provides up to 36 months of education benefits to eligible beneficiaries. In addition to tuition, beneficiaries may receive a stipend to help pay for books as well as a housing allowance.

Since 2009, service members have had the option of transferring some or all of their GI Bill benefit to their dependent spouses and children. Service members can choose to transfer the entire 36 month benefit to one family member or divide it among their spouse and/or children.

The regulations covering transferability of Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits are complex. Families should review the rules carefully to ensure that they meet all of the requirements for transferring and using the benefit. If your service member chooses to transfer his or her GI Bill benefit, it’s important to understand the following:

  • Service members must have served at least six years in the armed forces (active duty or Selected Reserve) and agree to serve an additional four years from the date of transfer.
  • Although the service member can apply to transfer the benefit after serving six years, children cannot use the benefit until the service member has served for ten years.
  • Service members can only apply to transfer benefits while they are still serving, not after retirement or separation.

Homework Helper: Resources for All Students

Homework Help Brings Scholarship Success

Academic success stems from hard work and good study habits. Teachers and parents are prime resources for ambitious students, but even the most disciplined academics require outside help along the way - new and better ways of uncovering answers and learning to think analytically.

Student needs are not going to be the same at all scholastic levels, so homework assistance zeros-in on the needs of specific age-groups.  Laying the groundwork for college begins at an early age and consistent academic performance - even at the elementary school level - leads to higher education opportunities. Whether mastering multiplication tables or researching historical topics, students of all ages will seek guidance from properly vetted online resources.

Using our Resources

We have reviewed and compiled a list of online homework helpers, separating them below into appropriate age and subject matter groupings. If you would like to skip down to the resources most applicable to you, simply use one of the following links:
