Policy 221-- Dress & Grooming addresses issues related to the health, safety, and welfare of the students attending our schools and further aids in the maintenance of a positive learning environment and promotes school pride and school spirit.
Students may be required to wear certain types of clothing while participating in physical education classes, technical education classes, extracurricular activities, or other situations where special attire may be required to ensure the health or safety of the student.
The Board authorizes and directs the school principal or designee to monitor student dress and grooming, and to enforce Board Policy and school rules regarding student dress and/or grooming.
At no time, shall students dress or groom themselves in a manner which could:
1. Present a hazard to the health or safety of the student or to others in the school.
2. Materially interfere with schoolwork, create disorder, or disrupt the educational program.
3. Cause excessive wear or damage to school property.
4. Prevent the student from achieving educational objectives because of blocked vision or restricted movement.
Violation of the dress code shall include the student being retained in the school office and/or placed in In-School Suspension until the student, parent, and/or guardian provides a proper change of clothing. A student may change from non-compliant clothing provided by the school, when available.
Further dress code violations shall be subject to disciplinary consequences as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct.
