Dress Code

Districtwide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems and improve school order and safety.

Students are expected to dress appropriately. If a student’s dress or appearance is determined to be disruptive, offensive, inappropriate, unsafe, vulgar or unhealthy, promoting discrimination, or promoting gang affiliation or activity, the student will be asked to correct the questionable dress and may be assigned disciplinary consequences.

Inability to remedy the situation may result in parent contact and the student being sent home. Refusal to comply with such a request may result in suspension for insubordination.

Dress Code Guidance in Jeffco

Responsibility for student dress and appearance generally rests with individual students and their families. Students may wish to express themselves by the manner of their dress and appearance; however, students shall not wear clothing or affect an appearance at school or school-sanctioned activities or events that is disruptive to the educational environment. Jeffco Public Schools standards on student attire are intended to help students focus on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems, and improve school order and safety.

Disciplinary action for violating the student dress code shall include notifying the student of the violation and requiring that the dress or appearance be corrected before the student reenters the classroom, school environment, or school-sanctioned activity or event. At the discretion of the building-level administrator, a family conference may be held. More serious consequences may result from repeated or serious violations.
