Changes in dress code

By TAMMY DOWDY
DISD Director of Communications
When Dickinson ISD students arrive for the 2015-16 school year on August 24, 2015, they will have more flexibility in the way they dress for school each day. With input from campus administrators and parents, the district revamped the standardized dress code it has had for several years and the board of trustees approved the change at the March board meeting.

The district is moving away from a more restrictive standardized dress code and starting next school year will have the “Dickinson ISD Standard of Dress” — one for students in grades prekindergarten to sixth grade and another for junior high and high school students in grades 7-12. The new Standard of Dress is more about what a student can’t wear versus outlining what a student must wear.

Next school year, clothing will no longer have to be a solid color and shirts do not have to be a polo, collared style shirt like the current dress code. This will give students and parents much more flexibility in choosing their student’s school clothes and make shopping much easier. Inappropriate decorations, advertisements, pictures or messages are not allowed on clothing. Administrators have the responsibility and right to determine the appropriateness of attire and grooming each day.

A student’s appearance has much to do with the way the student feels about himself and herself. Appearance also affects the way in which other students respond to them and has a great deal to do with student success and the learning atmosphere of the school. The Dickinson ISD Standard of Dress is established to teach grooming, hygiene, instill discipline and modesty, prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards, teach respect for authority and prepare students for the future.

Another big change is in backpacks. Beginning next school year, backpacks no longer have to be mesh or clear. They may be any fabric or decoration as long as there are no inappropriate pictures or messages on the backpack.

Copies of the new “Standard of Dress” will be sent home to parents before the end of the school year and will be included in all the districts’ Back to School publications, so that parents have the information when shopping for school clothes this summer. If you need a copy of the 2015-2016 Standard of Dress now, check with your son or daughter’s school.
