STUDENT APPEARANCE & DRESS CODE POLICY
Students are required to wear appropriate clothing according to the situation and the grade level involved. Inappropriate clothing and appearance are disruptive to the school program and principals will enforce adherence to this policy by those under their jurisdiction. Each school may provide for more specific dress code requirements within the scope of this district-wide dress code and shall provide each student with a copy of their school’s dress code.
School administrators have final authority to decide if clothing complies with District rules.
When it is determined that a student’s clothing does not comply with the dress code, a parent/guardian may be asked to bring an appropriate change of clothes to school. The student may, with parental permission, be sent home in order to change clothes. In addition, the student may also receive a disciplinary consequence for violating the school’s dress code policy. Violations of this Policy Violations of this policy shall be treated as disruptive behavior in violation of the Code of Student Conduct. However, policy violations shall not carry over on the student’s discipline record to subsequent years. This policy shall apply to students at all times when they attend school or any school sponsored event. The Principal may exercise discretion and permit exceptions to this policy for extracurricular activities.
