Part 11.0 Student Dress Code

Section 11.1 Dress Code Philosophy

Policy Statement:

Our dress code is based on our belief that uniforms:

  1. Increase respect for students by other students, staff, parents, and public
  2. Decrease distractions in the learning environment
  3. Increase respect for learning for students, parents, and staff
  4. Simplify school readiness on a daily basis for parents and students
  5. Prepare students for future success by teaching them professional dress

Our dress code was developed with these guidelines in mind:

  1. Simplicity - as few pieces as necessary to achieve the benefits listed above
  2. Equity - Few optional pieces to avoid student distinctions
  3. Affordability
  4. Durability
  5. Ease of implementation by students, parents, and school staff
