able to perform at their highest level in a safe and secure environment. A
strong correlation exists between student appearance and the perception and/or

JAIS dress code is established to teach
grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards. Any
disruptive or distractive mode of clothing or appearance that adversely impacts
the educational process is not permitted.

A primary purpose of the listed
expectations is to teach students how to dress appropriately for success in a
school/work environment. The dress code expectations will be taught in

of the school year with additional refreshers throughout the year as
appropriate and/or necessary.
