School City of East Chicago
Bylaws & Policies


The School Board believes that professional staff members set an example in dress and grooming for their students to follow. A professional staff member who understands this precept and adheres to it enlarges the importance of his/her task, presents an image of dignity, and encourages respect for authority. These factors act in a positive manner towards the maintenance of discipline.

The Board retains the authority to specify the following dress and grooming guidelines for staff that will prevent such matters from having an adverse impact on the educational process. All professional staff members shall, when assigned to Corporation duty: physically clean, neat, and well groomed;

 B.dress in a manner consistent with their professional responsibilities;

 C.dress in a manner that communicates to students a pride in personal appearance;

 D.dress in a manner that does not cause damage to Corporation property; groomed in such a way that their hair style or dress does not disrupt the educational process nor cause a health or safety hazard.
