A safe and disciplined learning environment is essential to a quality education program. District-wide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on school- work, reduce discipline problems, and improve school order and safety. Students are expected to wear appropriate clothing, including acceptable footwear, as outlined by our dress code guidelines.
Any student deemed in violation of the dress code shall be required to change into appropriate clothing or make arrangements to have appropriate clothing brought to school immediately. The student may also be subject to other disciplinary action as outlined in the school discipline code.
Janitell adheres to a conservative philosophy with regards to student attire. If a student’s clothing is deemed a distraction, it is the Administration’s responsibility to address the situation.
The following items are deemed disruptive or potentially disruptive to the classroom environment or to the maintenance of a safe and orderly school and are not acceptable in school buildings, on school grounds, or at school activities:
Appropriate athletic clothing may be worn in physical education classes. Clothing normally worn when participating in school-sponsored extra curricular or sports activities (such as cheerleading uniforms and the like) may be worn to school when approved by the sponsor or coach.
Building principals, in conjunction with the school accountability committee, may develop and adopt school-specific dress codes that are consistent with this policy.
