The general standards of appearance for students are that they can be clean, neat, and properly dressed. They are to observe modes of dress, styles of hair, and standards of personal grooming which are in conformity with the studious atmosphere necessary in schools.
The purpose for wearing uniforms is to promote students’ safety, minimize disruptions, identify trespassers on campuses, and promote improvement in student behavior and academic achievement. School uniforms should reflect school community standards and be consistent with occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation.
