- The dress code described above was current in April 2016. Any revisions made after printing for the 2017-2018 school year will be announced in any of the following venues: published by the district in school newsletters, district publications, and/or presented to the student body in the fall.
DRESS CODE DISCIPLINE POLICY:
Students who are considered out of dress code are referred to Student Services. If a student is determined to be out of dress code by the Student Services staff, the student will be given a fix-it ticket, but will remain in their class until their unscheduled lunch time, at which time they will go to the Student Services Office to make arrangements to change into acceptable apparel. If the clothing item is deemed to be out of the bounds of decency and good taste as appropriate for school, the student will be required to change into dress that is consistent with the Board’s dress code policy, which governs acceptable and appropriate apparel, immediately. Repeat offenders will face disciplinary action.
UNCLEARED ABSENCES/TRUANCY POLICY:
Students will be issued consequences for each truancy or uncleared absence. Habitual truancies/uncleared absences may lead to loss of privileges, discipline, referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB), and/or referral to alternative education. Students, who leave class without permission, leave campus at lunch without proper clearance, or leave school without checking out through the Attendance Office will be considered in violation of school/District policy.
