All District employees must comply with the following personal appearance standards at all times during scheduled working hours:

1. Employees are expected to dress in a manner that is normally acceptable in a professional environment. Employees should not wear suggestive or revealing attire, spaghetti straps, backless clothing, shirts or tops that reveal an exposed midriff; clothes printed with slogans, inappropriate or offensive comments; blue jeans, athletic clothing, shorts, T-shirts, baseball hats, flip-flop sandals and similar attire that do not present a professional appearance.

2. Certain employees may be required to wear special attire and footware, depending on the nature of their job (e.g. physical education, special education, grounds, facilities).

3. At the discretion of the District Administrator and his/her designee, an employee may be allowed to dress in a more casual fashion than normally required such as during summer school or field trips. On these occasions, employees are still expected to present a neat appearance and are not permitted to wear ripped or disheveled clothing, athletic wear or similarly inappropriate clothing.

Employees shall be informed of these personal appearance standards at the time of hiring. Any employee who does not meet the personal appearance standards outlined above will be required to take corrective action, which may include leaving work to change into appropriate clothing. Violations may also result in disciplinary action.
