DRESS CODE POLICY
The following policy on personal appearance will be used for students at North Augusta Middle School. This policy was taken from the Policy Manual (FILE # JCDB) of the School District of Aiken County. The Board recognizes that students have theright to regulate their personal appearance. However, the Board reserves the right to bar from school those students whose appearance is disruptive to the educational process. In addition, the school administration reserves the right to determine when a student’s appearance is disruptive to the educational process or the orderly operation of the school. Violation of the dress code will result in disciplinary action and exclusion from classes until appropriate clothing is acquired.
Some examples of dress that may be deemed inappropriate include, but are not limited to the following:
•Shorts, mini-skirts or dresses must be knee length or longer. This includes shorts, skirts, and dresses worn with leggings.
•Dresses with little or no back
•Tank tops or halter tops (shirts must completely cover shoulders)
•Pants with holes (including rips, tears, and holes with material underneath) above the knee.
•Clothing which depicts any of the following: alcoholic beverages, drugs, tobacco products, profane or obscene language, sexual connotations, or any picture that is determined to be inappropriate for school.
•Hats or hcoloring, or hairstyle deemed disruptive.Any clothing that could create a safety hazard such as “flip flops”, etc.
This policy will be strictly enforced. Students who do not adhere to the dress code will either be required to remain in ISS until appropriate clothing is furnished by parent/guardian or will be sent home. Repeated violations will result in OSS.
