Dress code standards foster a safe, healthy, and positive climate that promotes constructive discipline, maintains order, and supports the teaching and learning process.

Elementary Students:  Elementary school students wear a unified dress code. Each school will provide a description of their unified dress code.

Dress and Grooming Expectations for All Students

Note: The Principal has the final authority to determine when personal appearance does not meet expectations.

*Unless otherwise approved for instructional purposes.

State statute authorizes the school board to establish dress code requirements. All elementary schools will adhere to a unified dress code established by the school board and superintendent. For middle and high schools, the school board requires the School Advisory Council (SAC) to decide whether a unified or restrictive dress code is necessary for the safety and welfare of the student body and school personnel. When the SAC determines that a unified or restrictive dress code is necessary, the proposition shall be submitted to a vote of the families of students at such school, pursuant to a procedure established by the superintendent. If the proposition is approved by persons eligible to vote, and passes with a written vote of at least fifty percent + 1 (majority vote) in favor of the proposition, then the requirement for a unified or restrictive dress code shall be established and enforced at that school.
