If 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.  If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school.  Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.

Principal discretion is implied for each bulleted item listed above. The principal may consider for disapproval extreme displays of dress and grooming that are not defined in the dress code. As previously stated, Anna I.S.D. prohibits any clothing or grooming that in the principal’s judgment may reasonably be expected to cause distraction, interfere with normal school operations, or create a safety hazard. If you have reason to believe that you may not be adhering to the dress code, please consult your campus principal prior to coming to the start of school.
