Dress Code

Research has indicated that student behavior is influenced by student dress and grooming.
Consequently, student grooming is the proper concern of school administrators and
teachers. In order to help insure proper and acceptable behavior on the part of the student,
it becomes necessary to establish certain guidelines to aid parents and students in selecting
the proper attire for school wear.

School staff recognizes that parents bear the primary responsibility for setting standards for
their children's dress and grooming. However, because of health and safety factors, because
of the infl uence of dress and grooming on students' attitude and behavior, and because of
the need to prevent disruptive infl uences and preserve the academic environment of the
school, student dress and grooming are proper concerns of teachers and administrators.
Regulations shall be established concerning the grooming of students for those classes
where safety in the use of power machinery and sanitary conditions in food preparation is
mandatory. Students enrolled in these classes shall be informed of those regulations and
are expected to conform while in these classes. The campus administration, after consulting
with the School Advisory Team and considering school/community needs, may have additional
dress or grooming regulations that are campus specific.

To aid students and their parents in making decisions about appropriate dress and grooming
for schools, the following guidelines are established.
