All other rules and regulations for dress not covered in this policy will defer to the SDIRC Code of Conduct.
The proposed unified dress code will be applied to all students. It has been administratively determined that there will not be an opt-out alternative to the unified dress code except for sincerely held religious beliefs.

Repeated violations of dress code will be viewed as open defiance and may result in suspension. Attention Students and Parents: This change affects all students in the state of Florida and can found in Florida Statutes 1006.07(2) and 1006.15(3).
