In an attempt to keep students focused on academic achievement, the dress code is designed to reduce distractions.
In the event the administration determines a student’s dress is inappropriate for school in accordance with this policy, the administration either will require the student to change or will inform the student not to wear the garment to school again.
The administration will determine what is appropriate dress, accessories and/or appearance and reserves the right to prohibit students from wearing articles of clothing or other items which lead to or may foreseeably result in the disruption of or interference with the school environment. Parents will be called and asked to bring a change of clothes for students found in violation of the Dress Code. If parents are unable to bring clothing, the student may be assigned In-School Suspension (ISS) for the day. A parent conference may be required to discuss the appropriateness of attire. Repeated violations of the Dress Code will be treated as disruptive behavior and a violation of the District's Behavior Code. Defiance or refusal to change clothing and repeated offenses may result in disciplinary action.
Parents should review the district's publication, "GCSD Dress Code Policy", concerning discipline and the dress code.
