Student Dress Guidelines
Texarkana Independent School District’s Student Dress Guidelines are established to teach grooming and hygiene, to instill discipline, to prevent disruption, to avoid safety hazards and to teach respect for authority. Cleanliness, neatness, appropriateness, modesty and effect on the learning environment are the criteria that should dictate the student’s choice of school dress and grooming on any given day. A student is not appropriately dressed if he/she is a disturbing influence in class or school because of his/her selected choice of dress.
No attempt will be made to dictate fashion style as long as they are in keeping with school District guidelines and/or policies. Students and their Parents/Guardians are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that modesty, appropriateness and neatness of dress are maintained.
