Standardized dress code


Many of our elementary and middle schools have a standardized dress policy. This policy requires students to wear certain types of clothing but not specific brands of clothing.

There are some general requirements common from school to school but each one will provide information about its specific requirements. Color requirements are the same for all schools.

Each school has the option to choose days when alternative clothing may be worn. For example: School Spirit Day, College Day, Career Day, Free-Dress Day, etc.

NOTE: Our ACE  schools have specific school uniform requirements. See the Handley Dress Code and Lyles Dress Code pages for more details.
