Student Dress Code Policy
Good grooming promotes pride and good behavior and is a very important part of the general training of young people. The training is a cooperative effort of the school, parents and students. The intent of the student dress code is to restrict extremes and indecency, which would interfere with the District‘s educational mission or threaten the safety of students. The hallmark of the exercise of disciplinary action shall be fairness. The foundation of a dress code is to provide appropriate standards for student appearance and to assist in maintaining student behavior, which is conducive to the learning environment.
The building administrator shall have the authority to determine the appropriateness of any attire not specified below. In making such determination, the administrator shall consider whether the clothing, hairstyle, and/or accessory presents a safety hazard, is revealing, or disrupts the teaching and/or learning or has a factual and substantial history of creating such disruption. The principal, or other designated school official, is delegated the authority to determine the proper action and or discipline action if needed to be taken in issues related to the dress code. The following dress code for all students is established:
1. Skirts and Dresses: The skirt or dress must be no shorter than the top of the knee at all times. Slits must not extend above the knee.
