2022 – 2023
The Baird Independent School District’s dress code has been established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they follow the standards set out below.
We expect students to come to school in clothes that are clean and neat, and we expect students to exhibit basic cleanliness and grooming that will not be a health or safety threat to themselves or to other students or staff. The principal or designee makes decisions about dress and grooming violations.
If the principal or designee determines that a student’s grooming or dress violates the school’s dress and grooming standards, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. We will make efforts to notify a parent as soon as possible, and if the student changes clothes or otherwise comes into compliance with dress and grooming standards, she or he will return to regular classes immediately. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Baird ISD Student Code of Conduct.
The principal or designee has the discretion to make exceptions to the dress code for special events such as pep rallies, spirit days, etc. Sponsors of extracurricular groups such as band or athletics may impose additional restrictions on dress and grooming as a requirement for participation in the extracurricular activity.
The student dress code will be enforced on district property from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.
