FACULTY DRESS CODE

The Governing Board believes that teachers serve as role models.  They should therefore, maintain professional standards of dress and grooming. Just as overall attitude and instructional competency contribute to a productive learning environment, so do appropriate dress and grooming.

The Board encourages staff, during school hours, to wear clothing that demonstrates their high regard for education and presents an image consistent with their job responsibilities.

Accordingly, all staff shall adhere to the following standards of dress: 

1)      Standards That Apply to All Faculty 

a)      Clothing and jewelry must be safe and appropriate to the educational environment, and should not present a distraction in class. All clothing must be clean and in good-repair. Slits or tears in pants or other articles of clothing are not permitted except for modest slits in women’s dresses or skits that are no higher than above the knee. 

b)      Unconventional hair color is not permitted.  Unconventional hair color includes, but is not limited to, blue, bright red, bright yellow, orange, green and purple.   

c)      Head coverings, including hats of any kind, (except those worn for religious or safety reasons) are not to be worn inside school buildings including assemblies, classrooms, labs and offices. Hats may be worn outside for sun protection.  Such hats shall not have logos that depict and/or promote  drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, violence, illegal activities, profanity, or obscenity.  All hats are to be removed upon entering school buildings.  For exceptions to this policy, prior approval must be granted by the Executive Director.   

d)      Slacks are to be worn on the waist with no portion of an undergarment showing. Jeans are not permitted. Short pants are not permitted. 

e)      Skirts and dresses should be modest in length – no higher than the knee. 

f)        All tops must have sleeves. (Cap sleeves are acceptable.) Tops that are see-through, or show any part of an undergarment, are not acceptable. Tops exposing cleavage are not permitted. Clothing that exposes bare midriffs is not permitted. 

g)      Body piercing, other than earrings, is not permitted. For safety purposes, earrings must not dangle more than one inch below the ear. 

h)      Clothing or jewelry with logos that depict and/or promote drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, violence, illegal activities, profanity, or obscenity are not permitted. 

i)        Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times. For academic classrooms, dress shoes should be worn. For physical education, proper athletic shoes should be worn. Exceptions will be made for medical conditions. 

All faculty members shall dress in a business-like and professional manner.  The following is an example of appropriate attire:  

For Women:   Dress slacks with blouses, collared shirts, or sweaters and blazers; business dresses; business skirts with blouses or sweaters and blazers; business suits.

 

For Men:        Business suits; dress slacks with shirt and tie, collared shirts,  and sweaters, vests or blazers. 

This list is not exhaustive; rather, it is intended to provide a standard for appropriate school attire. 

Failure to follow the Dress Code will be grounds for discipline including dismissal.
