South-Western City School District
Bylaws & Policies


Standard dress and grooming is the responsibility of students and their parents, except in cases where reasonable standards are required in some activities outside the regular school day and where necessary for reasons for health and safety. If a manner of dress, grooming and/or appearance disrupts the normal educational process, school administrators shall take necessary action to correct the situation.

A student shall not dress or appear in a manner deemed inappropriate because, (a) it either endangers or interferes with the student's health and/or welfare of that or of other students, (b) causes disruption or directly interferes with the educational process, and/or (c) displays gang, drug, and alcohol related symbols or language.
