Dress Code Overview
An overview of the student dress code

(Policy JFCA, Adopted 6/26/07; Revised 6/23/09)

The Board of Education recognizes that student individual dress is primarily a parental responsibility, which should reflect concern for health and safety of the student and others, and to school property. When the dress of an individual student constitutes a health problem, seems to be unsuitable for school wear, is a physical danger to any person, or when the student’s manner of dress or grooming could cause a disruption or disturbance, the principal shall take appropriate action to correct the situation.

 

The local school and the District reserve the right to modify this policy as necessary and reserve the right to determine what might be disruptive and unsafe.

 

The following paragraphs regarding the Student Dress Code shall apply to Indian River School District in-school activities, music programs, awards ceremonies, and banquets:

 

a. Shirts with collars, polo shirts, tee shirts, turtlenecks, sweaters, sweatshirts (including hooded sweatshirts provided the hood is not worn during the normal school day), vests, pants, denim jeans, Capri pants (or similar), skirts, skorts, culottes, shorts, jumpers, and dresses are acceptable.
