FNCA(LOCAL) - STUDENT CONDUCT: DRESS CODE
Dress and Grooming Code
Authority and Purpose
The Board delegates the authority to enforce the dress and grooming code to the principal.
The District's dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, instill discipline, prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards, and teach respect for authority.
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.
The District's dress and grooming code must be followed during regular school operational hours and at all school-sponsored activities and events held after school hours both on and off school property.
The District prohibits pictures, emblems, or writings on clothing that:
Are lewd, offensive, vulgar, obscene, or advocate violence, gore, or death.
Advertise or depict tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance prohibited under FNCF(LEGAL).
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 with the student dress code outlined in the student handbook.
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 dress and grooming standards established for such an activity 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, as specified in the Student Code of Conduct.
