No. The dress code is reviewed annually by administrative staff based on feedback received from parents, students and teachers throughout the year. The dress code for 2016-17 will not be undergoing any changes and will be reviewed again in May, 2017.
No. The intent in allowing spirit shirts as part of everyday standardized dress is to 1) increase school spirit and 2) give students and families the opportunity to support our school groups and local businesses that sell school spirit shirts as fundraisers/for profit. Spirit shirts must represent an actual CISD campus, team, sport, club, group or event.
No. College spirit shirts and hoodies must represent an actual accredited college or university. Military institutions such as the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy or West Point would be acceptable as college spirit shirts.
Students in 6th - 12th grade must wear a belt inside the belt loops if belt loops are present. If a particular style of pants that otherwise meets the requirements of standardized dress pants do not have belt loops, a belt is not required. Belts are preferred but not required in Grades PK-5.
Solid color or school appropriate designs/patterns are allowed on tights or leggings worn under a skirt.
No. The Standardized Dress Code is for students. Our teachers and staff are expected to wear professional dress appropriate to their assignment. Staff may participate when there is a school-wide or district-wide special dress day (i.e. Playoff Jeans Day).
