Student Dress Code

The responsibility for student dress and general appearance shall rest with individual students and parents. However, the Board of Education requires students to attend school in appropriate dress that meets health and safety standards and does not interfere with the learning process. The Board also requires students to wear appropriate protective gear in certain classes. In addition, the Board prohibits attire bearing an expression or insignia which is obscene or libelous, or which advocates prejudice.

The Superintendent of Schools and other designated administrative personnel shall have the authority to require a student to change his/her attire, should it be deemed inappropriate, according to the above guidelines. Please note specifics in each individual school's handbook.
