Student Dress Code

  • Dress Code

    Dress for Success!

    The District’s dress code is set at a minimum standard by the District in policy FNCA. The campus may adopt a more stringent code that meets the specific demands and needs of the campus and community.

    a) The district's dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, instill discipline, prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards, and teach respect for authority.

    b) Students shall be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat and that will not be a health or safety hazard to themselves or others. The district prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal school operations. A campus handbook may list specific examples of appropriate and inappropriate clothing, hair, jewelry, or manner of dress.

    c) The district prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that:

    (1) are lewd, offensive, vulgar, or obscene.

    (2) advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance prohibited by district policy.

    (3) are evidence of membership or affiliation in any gang.

    d) The student and parent may determine the student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the general guidelines set out above and the district's dress code for students in the campus handbooks and/or Code of Conduct/discipline management plan.

    e) If the principal determines that a student's grooming violates the dress code, the student shall be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student shall be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school or until the problem is otherwise corrected.

    f) The principal, in cooperation with the sponsor, coach, or other person in charge of an extracurricular activity, may regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in the activity. Students who violate those standards may be removed or excluded from the activity for a period determined by the principal or sponsor and may be subject to other disciplinary action.

    g) A campus SIT committee may recommend students wear a school uniform.
