|It is the goal of the AIM Center High School to promote a safe and pleasant environment for all students. The dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, to prevent disruption, and to minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:
- All shirts/blouses must have sleeves. Sleeveless shirt/blouses, tank tops, halters, muscle shirts, see-through blouses, or tops with low necklines or severely cut armholes are not permitted. No under garments should be visible at any time.
- Midriffs and backs must not be exposed. Tops must join or overlap skirts, pants, or trousers at all times.
- Jeans and other apparel should have no holes above the knee. Any holes should be patched and pants should be properly hemmed.
- Jeans that are oversized must be worn with a belt. No under garments should be visible at any time, standing or seated.
- Dresses and skirts should be at or below the knee cap.
- No shorts or skorts are permitted. Capri pants must be mid-calf length.
- Leggings/jeggings are not considered pants and must be worn under an appropriate length dress or skirt.
- No pajama or “pajama like” clothing is allowed.
- Inappropriate patches, pictures, symbols, writings, slogans, or quotes-either attached or painted on clothing are not to be worn. Clothing which desecrates the flag, deals with alcohol, tobacco, narcotics, or contains sexual references or innuendoes is prohibited.
- Shoes must be worn at all times. No house shoes or slippers are allowed.
- Caps or hats may not be worn in other campus buildings when we get breakfast and lunch.
- Hair, mustaches, and sideburns shall be neat, clean and well groomed. Sideburns should be no longer than the bottom of the ear.
- Hair should be natural colors.
- No excessive piercings.
- Tattoos that may cause a distraction should be covered at school.
All questions about dress code will be answered by the principal or designee. When the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school or have someone bring needed items to be in compliance. If the student’s dress code violation is not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension or be sent home for the remainder of the day. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
