Dress Code for 2018-2019

For Full Dress Code see this Document

  1. DRESS AND APPEARANCE

Students are expected to be clean and appropriately dressed for school. Dress and appearance must not present health or safety problems or cause disruption and should encourage a serious approach to school. The local school principal/designee will be the final authority for determining appropriate dress within the framework of the policy. The Baldwin County Board of Education prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause a substantial disruption of, or interference with, normal school operations.
